What examples from your own culture can illustrate the ideas that our behaviors are impacted by our culture more than our biology? Use terminology from the text and ideas from your own life to support your answers.

As I was reading about what a cultural anthropologist does, I had to laugh when I read over these words, but the keys words are so much of the primary factor in the research of their job. A huge part of cultural anthropologist’s job is figuring out the yuk factor and delicious factor within ones culture. Our book used the example that Muslins do not eat Pork this would be considered a yuk factor (Nowak & Laird, 2010). We all identify from early in life with culture within our family and once we became of school as our interpretation and observation widens.
