Neanderthals

Neanderthals gave humans the gene for disease


The results of a new study by German and United States researchers showed that there is a genetic connection between Neanderthals and modern humans. This connection could be responsible for something as benign as being able to tolerate cold weather better, or something as sinister as being predisposed to developing type 2 diabetes. In spite of the fact that Neanderthals died out more than 30,000 years ago, their genetic material still thrives in people who live today.
