Our Neanderthal Genes May Give Us Allergies

 

Recent research by scientists at the Max Planck Institute in Leipzig, Germany shows that genes inherited from our ancient human relatives made our immune systems overly sensitive.

The researchers were able to identify three genes in the DNA of Neanderthals and Denisovans most commonly found in humans.

These genetic variations usually have an immune-boosting effect and help us ward off infection, but some people, however, are more prone to allergies due to these genes.
