We are what we are today because of evolution. And evolution doesn't stop even if we seem perfect just the way we are. Evolution is a never-ending cycle. If you have ever been to a natural history museum you would be amazed at the changes we as humans have been through. Here, with one simple trick we are going to find out if you are one amongst the newly evolved humans.
Believe it or not, there are some parts of our body that we don't need anymore. For example, the body hair we have. Now that we can control the environment around us and have clothes to wear, this particular feature of our body is kinda obsolete. But back then, our ancestors needed this to keep warm. Actually, not just the body hair but the goosebumps are a minor irritation now too. These goosebumps helped retain the body heat.
There's actually a whole list of items that we don't need in our body. Which means that we are not going to or seldom use them, which according to the law of evolution will be eliminated one by one in the coming generation.
Things like the remnants of the third eyelid to the wisdom teeth in our mouth, there's actually a lot of things we don't need today.
And there's this one important feature that will let you know if you are evolving right now!
Recently, it has come to the notice of researchers that a particular tendon in our hand that helped us swing from tree to tree(you know back then) is becoming obsolete in some.
Which makes it pretty clear that this 'evolution game' is far from over.
About 10-15% of the people do not have this tendon at all.
The tendon we are talking about is called the ' palmaris longus.' It's located in our forearm and if you wanna find out if its there, here's how to find out.
Keep your palm up, bend your wrist and join your pinky and thumb! If its there you will see it at the base of your wrist.
