Adam’s Curse, A Future Without Men

The Y chromosome, compared to the body’s 45 other chromosomes, is very fragile. It has been worn down by millions years of attrition and over time has lost many of its genes. It is unable to exchange genetic material or repair itself because it does not combine with other chromosomes like the X chromosome does. Professor Bryan Sykes, author of “Adam’s Curse, A Future Without Men,” explains the degeneration of the Y chromosome.

Bryan Sykes recommends “Mismatch,” by Andrew Hacker & “Burgdorf Blondes,” by Plumb Sykes.

    The show about the Y chromosome is so old the company you talked about doesn’t even exist anymore. You should update the information.
