    Personally I would interpret those results as statistical noise. Results at the individual chromosome level have a larger margin of error than the overall result.

    Perhaps the explanation for the Dutch overtaking other countries in height over the last 70 years is that taller Dutch men have more children on average than other Dutch men. Dutch women of average...

    I wonder if the Dutch famine of 1944-45 had something to do with it. Perhaps the children of the famine responded by switching to "emergency mode", using every scrap of protein as efficiently as they...
