Genetics Does Not Dictate Fate
An estimated 95% of Mongolians are genetically lactose intolerant WHILE dairy comprises up to half their diet: https://www.popsci.com/.../lactose-intolerance.../...
In genetic testing of human remains from archaeological digs, we find that humans lacked the gene to digest milk sugar for at least 4,000 years of dairy consumption.
Bacteria and the microbiome make possible outcomes many would’ve loved to pin on heredity and DNA.
And this is not an isolated event.
Massive datasets prove that SPOUSES have more similar lifespan and mortality than FAMILY members: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/30401766/
And scientists have proven that certain traits persist in subsequent generations even AFTER the gene is no longer present in subsequent generations: https://www.cell.com/cell/pdf/S0092-8674(19)31374-1.pdf
The complexity of life is far too vast to blame on simplistic genetics fatalism. Not even mostly. That is now an archaic and disproven worldview. And in kind, we need to reject the implications of that faulty outdated worldview.
