Human Evolution: Our Height Indicates We Are Still Evolving

Human Evolution: Our Height Indicates We Are Still Evolving

  We are still evolving. Research conducted has shown that between 1870 and 1980, European men have grown by an average of 11cm. 15 European countries were included in this research, all showing this increase in height. For many, the increase was an expected evolutionary trait. Improved nutrition and health, it has been often assumed(…)
