Africans Have Stronger Immune Systems Than Europeans – Thanks To Neanderthals

AFRICANGLOBE - The immune systems of Europeans were partly shaped by the introduction of new genetic variants through interbreeding between early European ancestors and Neanderthals. Strong evidence of selection on genes that control the immune response and that Europeans 'borrowed' some key regulatory variants from Neanderthals.
