AREA 52 048: “Designer Genes”

Throughout history, humans have evolved and adapted to different climates and circumstances, and even to this day, our genes are still evolving and, in some cases, even mutating.

Some of these mutations have resulted in conditions that we commonly see and think nothing of, like redheads or albinos, but these conditions weren’t always, and in some cases, still aren’t accepted.

From redheads historically being thought of as witches and vampires, to albinos being hunted down and butchered in current day Africa, this week we discuss human anomalies and the urban legends and sordid histories that surround them. We also discuss a new blood type that has some theorists claiming alien influence, others saying it may be the actual bloodline of Christ and some believing that they may be the exact same thing. Enjoy!
