Fascinating! Sickle cell anemia is the most commonly inherited disease in
the world [Only registered users see links. ].
and yet the genetic carriers (hybrid genotypes) are very resistant to
malaria [Only registered users see links. ]
one of the most common (300-500 mi8llion cases per year) and fatal (1
million deaths per year)diseases.
Also, hemophiliacs don't seem to get ischemic strokes, phlebitis, or
myocaridal infarctions as often as "healthy" people do.
This suggests there is reason to look for hidden benefits of hereditary
"diseases," and reason to question *anybody's* evaluation of *any* specific
genetic trait as "undesirable."
