The Story Behind Neanderthal
MSNBC reported this week that scientists had decoded Neanderthal genes, claiming that this close ancestor to humans began divering from humans in the evolutionary process about 700,000 years ago and made a complete split 300,000 years ago. This new research "could help shed light on the evolution of our own species...."
If scientists truly want the Neanderthals to "shed light on the evolution of our species," they should probably ready Buried Alive, the excellent book written by forensic orthodontist Jack Cuozzo. Cuozzo was hired to perform forensic orthodontistry on the Neanderthals and writes his stunning results in his book.
