Re: The more we marry our cousins, the worse our genes are warped
WoW! what a nonscientific column. There are several ways of looking at this. For those with little resources but good statistical background and knowledge of genetics, a good in silico modeling will suffice. For a better estimate, a well-conducted study will be good.
Anyway, there is no data, and I am repeating there is no data either through modeling alone or through well conducted studies, that proves the claims above.
A little bit of knowledge of Mendelian laws cannot compensate for all the subsequent advances in genetics.
The reason that Europeans didn't marry cousins had nothing to do with science and had everything to do with Church's policy, a lead for those who want to dig deeper
