Gene causing arthritis may have helped humans survive Ice Age: Study

The study showed that mutations in the gene called GDF5 resulted in shorter bones that led to a compact body structure while reducing the risk of bone fracture from falling.

One of Earth's biggest mass extinctions the result of ice age, not global warming!

It is the first time that the various stages of a mass extinction have been accurately understood and that scientists have been able to assess the major role played by volcanic explosions in these climate processes.
