Description:

This article by Robin McKie from Guardian Unlimited discusses a scientific debate surrounding the question of whether "a Western lifestyle now protects humanity from the forces that used to shape Homo sapiens." Advances in medicine, agriculture, hygiene, and the mixing of human genetic populations have all led to what some scientists see as an evolutionary standstill as more and more humans live long enough to pass on their genes.
