The human race is becoming more and more stupid? Even hundreds of years, some experts believe that people lose their cognitive abilities and become more emotionally unstable. Genetics at Stanford University, Dr. Gerald Crabtree believes that the intelligent extinction of the human race is associated with adverse mutations. But the intellect of people is suffering as well as other factors.
Our cognitive and emotional abilities are fed and determined the combined efforts of thousands of genes. If one or more of these gene mutations occur – as is likely – it will have a negative effect on our intelligence and emotional stability.
“I’m willing to bet that if the average resident of Athens 1000 BC was suddenly among us, he or she would have been among the most intelligent and intellectual people living today, with a good memory, a wide range of ideas, and a clear view of the important things . Moreover, I assume that he or she would have been one of the most emotionally stable personalities, “so Crabtree begins his article in the scientific journal Trends in Genetics.
Next, the geneticist explains that people with specific adverse mutations are more likely to be able to survive among the “strong.” Darwin’s theory of “survival of the fittest” is less applicable in today’s society, so that those with the best genes will not necessarily dominate in the society as it was in the past.
This theory has a number of strengths, but it raises a key question: Are the genes of the main reason for the overall cognitive decline of the human race? If people really experience this effect, it is extremely important for us to identify other possible causes of it. Let’s take a look at what role played by our power supply system.
It’s sad, but true: our food system has contributed to the reduction of human intelligence around the world.
