Genes show humans are still evolving

Chicago Tribune | Genes show humans are still evolving: “Providing the strongest evidence yet that human beings are still evolving, researchers have detected some 700 regions of the human genome where genes appear to have been reshaped by natural selection, a principal force of evolution, within the last 5,000 to 15,000 years.”The genes that show this evolutionary change include some responsible for the senses of taste and smell, digestion, bone structure, skin color and brain function.”
And you thought X-Men was just sci-fi!
