The Human Body Is Evolving-Scientists

Concerned that the human body may be involved in in certain numbing changes also began to carry out speciific study researches. Over time, they have unearthed a number of startling facts about the human body in particular. One of the recent findings indicate that indeed the human body may have been going through changes, a fact that is compelling experts to consider once more, the evolution theory.
In a report published in the Journal of Anatomy in 2020, researchers say, the median artery, which helps circulate blood in human forearm right, inside the fetus before waning out completely some eight weeks after is now staying put permanently.
The artery, according to scientists, takes form early inside the fetus during the early circle of human development. It’s job, they say, is to help move blood down the centre of the arm to enrich the growth process and that it later hands over the job job to other vessels, the radial and ulnar arteries, at eight weeks after which it disappears, job done.
But new findings appear to suggest that this is not the case anymore.
The artery, which temporarily moves to the centre of the forearm while the child is in the womb, is not disappearing as it used to. Instead, it has been recorded to continue growing compelling researchers to look again at the evolution theory, wondering if it could mean that the human body, as presently constituted, is undergoing a change process after all.
The study by a group of researchers from the University of Adelaide and Flinders University, both in Australia, claims that anatomists have been considering the presence of the artery in adults since the 18th century, concluding their recent study indicating that it has increased substantially in size and longevity.
Their findings indicate that the prevalence was about per cent in individuals born in the mid-1880s but that the figure rose to 30 per cent for births in the 20th century. The rising incident, they pointed out, resulted in a spate of interest particularly with regard to the evolution standpoint, putting into view the huge surge that occurred within a short period of time.
Thus far, scientists examined 80 limbs from cadavers donated by Australians of European descent. The bodies, aged 51 to 101 years, apparently indicating that they were born in the first half of the 20th century, were examined in an attempt to understand how prevalent the blood vessel has been.
In particular, they considered the frequency of finding the median artery that was capable of a good blood supply function, compared with previous findings. They found out that the artery was three times more common in adults today than it was over a century ago.
“This increase could have resulted from mutations of genes involved in median artery development or health problems in mothers during pregnancy, or both. If the trend continues, a majority of people will have a median artery of both the forearm by 2100,” the researchers said.
