Science paints a new picture of the ancient past, when we mixed and mated with other kinds of humans

  • Our ancestors interacted closely with other early humans, such as Neanderthals and the Denisovans, leaving a lasting impact on our DNA and health.
  • The interbreeding with Neanderthals provided us with a quick fix for our immune systems, but today it can increase the risk of certain diseases. For instance, a gene inherited from Neanderthals can raise the risk of stroke for older adults.
  • Scientists can now use ancient DNA fragments to uncover the traits and effects of our ancient cousins, demonstrating how our fertility, immune systems, and even our response to the COVID-19 virus are influenced by our shared history.
