A rare case of natural selection in modern man
registered Danish evolutionary scientists.
Representatives of the Baggio ethnic group living in the Philippines,
Indonesia, Malaysia and Brunei gradually from generation to generation
have developed an amazing ability to dive to significant
depth and stay under water for a long time. It turned out that these
Asians, freedivers enlarged spleen, and the genome has undergone
Baggios are capable of an incredibly long time under water
