Berkeley Biologist: “Puerto Rican Women Closest to Perfection”.
Berkeley biologist just released a study that says Puerto Rican’s are closest to the perfect genetic specimen. Puerto Rican WOMEN to be exact.
Lior Pachter is a computational biologist in genomics at Berkeley. He recently published an article researching which genes would represent the “perfect physical specimen”. Here’s what he had to say:
The nearest neighbor to the “perfect human” is HG00737, a female who is Puerto Rican. One might imagine that such a person already existed, maybe Yuiza, the only female Taino Cacique (chief) in Puerto Rico’s history.
The fact that the “perfect human” is Puerto Rican makes a lot of sense. The best genes are spread throughout the world, and Puerto Ricans have a diverse background. In a study, Puerto Rican women born on the island but living in the United States were shown to be 53.3% European, 29.1% West African, and 17.6% Native American. That diversity means Puerto Ricans have inherited all the best genes from those races, and more.
