The simple answer: Neoteny, the retention by adults of traits previously seen only in juveniles.

The long answer: It’s very interesting. The author chains together an incredible series of events including the gulf stream, ocean currents, the invention of cereal growing, Solar UV Rays, human adaptation, Melanin, and the human body’s need for Vitamin D. Very interesting.
