The human ability to exercise in a wide range of ambient temperatures is the hallmark of a system developed in concert with the environment and the need for adaptation at all levels of functioning. Much of our capacity for thermal tolerance can be traced to the evolutionary processes that provided the stimulus for such adaptations.Beginning with the primordial soup, where heat combined with methane, nitrogen, ammonia, and hydrogen to give rise to the molecules that eventually formed amino acids and the building blocks of life, high temperatures were indeed a necessary element for starting life.
