Celebrating Darwin Day, Researchers Find link between Health and Evolution

12 February is celebrated as Darwin Day to offer tribute to Charles Darwin for his remarkable contribution to evolution science.

It's been about two centuries, since Darwin gave the theories of origin and evolution. Since then, many researchers have been studying them in details and revising for better. Researchers have reassessed the 'mechanism of evolution' or 'natural selection' theory several times, but they end up reinforcing the theories propounded by great Charles Darwin.

Indeed, Charles Darwin's contribution to science makes him stand in the league of the most knowledgeable people in the world of Science including Einstein and Newton.

After Darwin, researchers have further carried out detailed analysis on the topic and the latest development in the field is the link between evolution and human health.

A research commissioned by National Institutes of Health has come up with findings, how health, medicine and evolution are interlinked. The study suggests that the complex process of evolution leads to genetic adaptations, which further enable the organisms to live and survive. These genetic adaptations are also responsible for healthy organisms.

However, there is a large religious group, which considers evolution theory to be an offence to their religious beliefs. These groups don't get the concepts like cosmological and biological in terms with their religious beliefs. Therefore, the scientist fraternity needs to defend the Darwin theory.
