A new research has supported what Charles Darwin suggested through his observations and theories about animals living on islands. Darwin had said that animals living on islands are more tamer than their relatives living on the mainland. This makes the animals living on the islands more vulnerable to their predators than their counterparts living on mainland.

An array of diets can be found on internet that claims to make people more powerful and healthier. One of such diets is caveman diet. This type of diet used to prevail in the Paleolithic period and generally comprised of nuts, berries and read meat.
But a novel research carried out by a group of researchers from Oxford University has revealed that reads meat was not part of the diet at that time. Some 2.4 million years ago, people survived on tiger nuts.

Earlier, it was considered that Native Americans' ancestors have come from East Asia. But the DNA result of a 4-year-old Siberian boy, who died 24,000 years ago, seems to have turned the tables.
It is now being considered that Native Americans have come from Europe. The study, which has published in the journal Nature, has clearly segregated Native Americans into two groups. Modern-day Native Americans were found to be sharing 40% of their DNA with Siberian hunter-gatherers.

Researchers reveal that men have bigger noses as compared to women. This is because they have more muscles and need more amount of oxygen to breathe. They added that the findings also highlighted the anonymity behind the evolution of humans that Neanderthals had big noses.
The present humans have smaller noses as compared to primeval humans, also consisting of Neanderthals, the closest relatives of humans who have died now. According to scientists, the size of human nose is directly associated to the amount of oxygen needed by the human body.

According to a new report, scientists believe that life on earth was first originated because of presence of clay hydrogels. Dan Luo, Cornell University, said that the clay hydrogels provides a clear description of the chemical reactions between bio-molecules and biochemical's.
Not only science, God and religions also believe the same fact. It has been said that God had made humans of the dust of ground. Here they compared dust with that of clay.

Scientists have finally undermined the belief that various different human species existed on earth two million years ago. Scientists were able to draw this conclusion after analyzing the most complete hominid skull ever discovered in Damanisi, Georgia.
Scientists are now of the view that Homo habilis, Homo rudolfensis and Homo erectus belong to one human species. They evolved from a single lineage that eventually led to modern humans.
