Evolution Not Over for Humans / Study finds natural selection still happening, with gene variants linked to Alzheimer's, smoking fading

They also found similar evidence that a genetic variation linked to heavy smoking in men is becoming less common. "It may be that men who don't carry these harmful mutations can have more children, or that men and women who live longer can help with the
