Submission + - Most of us are part Neanderthal->

mspohr writes: New DNA analysis shows that most non-African modern humans have Neanderthal genes. Neanderthals thrived in Europe until the arrival of modern homo sapiens sapiens about 30,000 years ago. There is now solid evidence of interbreeding between Neanderthals and modern humans. Only African modern humans are pure homo sapiens sapiens. The rest of us have Neanderthal genes.
