I'm having trouble copying and pasting from this study, but suffice it to say that I think they really have to stop all this consanguineous marriage.

I think there is a bigger thread than inbreeding today.
Inbreeding narrows DNA variation, so natural selection has to work on a narrow basis.
That is the danger of inbreeding.

Todays addiction on medical treatments and drugs make a shortcut of natural selection.
The medical costs because of this will grow exponentialy in future generations.
People will end up being made in test tubes and machines will help them survive to create a next generation.
People will be completely dehumanised.

So far my portion of science fiction for this evening.
