Human DNA shows signs of negative selection
Evolution continues….. also in humans - life science news

Geneticists found traces of negative selection through analysis of the genome of more than 125,000 people. Negative selection is a natural mechanism that makes sure that bad DNA mutations do spread in the population. Negative selection was especially evident for traits related to cardiovascular function and fertility. These observations show that evolution is still at work, also in people.
