Three genes inherited from Neanderthals slash the risk of severe Covid-19 by 22 per cent, a new study has revealed. ...Researchers compared the DNA of 2,200 Covid-19 patients from around the world with the genes of three Neanderthals that lived 50,000, 70,000 and 120,000 years ago.They found people with Neanderthal versions of the genes OAS1, OAS2 and OAS3 were less likely to develop severe symptoms after infection with the coronavirus. These genes produce enzymes which specifically target invading RNA viruses, and the Neanderthal version is thought to be more potent.
What about alien DNA from the Greys who fucked our Cro-Magoan ancestors?
Africans do have a little Neanderthal DNA, I thinkCan't find reference without electricity though
The latest findings suggest human and Neanderthal lineages are more closely intertwined than once thought and point to far earlier interbreeding events, about 200,000 years ago. ...The study suggests living Europeans and Asians carry about 1% Neanderthal DNA, compared with on average 0.3% for those of African ancestry.
Several direct-to-consumer genetic testing companies report how much DNA a person has inherited from prehistoric humans, such as Neanderthals and Denisovans. This information is generally reported as a percentage that suggests how much DNA an individual has inherited from these ancestors. The percentage of Neanderthal DNA in modern humans is zero or close to zero in people from African populations, and is about 1 to 2 percent in people of European or Asian background.
I know I'm in the R1b group from genetic testing,
I am NM-231, so a pseudo Asian :)
Why are Igbos in Nigeria light-skinned despite being from West Africa?Not all Igbos are light-skinned, and there other Nigerian ethnic groups that sometimes commonly produce light-skinned people. But a very high proportion of Igbo people are indeed light-skinned or at least quite fair-skinned, compared to all or most other Nigerian and West African ethnic groups.
State Road 231 (NM 231) is a 4.995-mile-long (8.039 km) state highway in the US state of New Mexico.
How can a highway exist in the United States that is 5,000 miles long, when the country is less than 3000 miles wide at it's widest points?That civil engineer needs to be fired.
OK, this would get me shot in politically correct circles, but damn, doesn't the high R1b concentration in Africa correspond with the Igbo homeland in the southeast of Nigeria?And the Igbo are widely known as the smartest Africans.Just sayin. Could be random. But it is a striking coincidence.
richwicks saysHow can a highway exist in the United States that is 5,000 miles long, when the country is less than 3000 miles wide at it's widest points?That civil engineer needs to be fired.LOL! Three decimal points off. You must work for Pentagon accounting.Sorry, I couldn't resist, I'm a bad person.
