Isn't sickle cell anemia a bad thing?
Is this related to the g6pd? I was told I’m malaria resistant but couldn’t eat fava beans. Fortunately it doesn’t come up very often...
Well we've been getting killed by malaria for our entire existence. Evolution HAD to do something
If I’m not mistaken it’s how famous hip hop producer and artist jdilla passed away. May he Rest In Peace.
> the sickle cell mutation
If I recall correctly, there is no single mutation, but multiple variants that affect different hemoglobin genes. What gives?
What about the hemoglobin-C trait? Has this also stemmed from that same mutation?
But didn't millions also die because of this mutation?
Can I get someone to clarify. This is purely by chance and not due to something that person did?
