Alex's New and Hottttt, Week 3

Click here for an article that was pretty big in the science news about 2 months ago. I guess it was sort of interesting that in class we talked about about how 3 generations of Darwins married Wedgewoods and all this incest was pretty sketchy...

Also I guess this sort of stuff happened back in the old days when royalty would marry other royalty to keep the wealth within the family.

Long story short, this inbreeding is not really a good call. However, that article found that in the animal world, it looks like inbreeding happens sometimes with many more benefits than harms. The logic and analysis they give is certainly interesting.
