Eldorado Posted June 9, 2022 #1 Share Posted June 9, 2022 A single Neanderthal gene found in one in six Britons is likely to blame for up to a million Covid deaths, according to an Oxford academic. The LZTFL1 gene is a Neanderthal gene found on chromosome three and has been previously shown to double a person’s risk of severe disease and death. But before now there had never been an estimated figure for how many lives were lost to this single piece of genetic code. Roughly 15 per cent of Europeans have the Neanderthal form of the gene, compared to about 60 per cent of South Asians. https://www.msn.com/en-gb/health/mindandbody/neanderthal-gene-probably-caused-up-to-a-million-covid-deaths/ar-AAYgLF3? 4 1 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
