DNA links man to 'world’s first woman'
Ian Kinnaird’s family tree went all the way back to 'Eve', scientists say
every human being existed on earth came from adam & eve. this study only creates confusion, descrimination and does not value the presence of less fortunate people who cannot threet imes a day. spend the millions of money to feed the hunger children in africa and rest of the poor nations in the world, that what the true DNA of eve is all about.

has science tested DNA for every human being on earth????? there may be some human being who are even children of Eve or mother of ian please do not base your research from a part population. we need more convincing researches.

Lots of silly comments over here! There is a big difference between 200 mutations removed and only two mutations removed.

The genes and the DNA - the code to make a human - are a combination of genetic material received from a man and a woman. During a lifetime, some of this material is subject to forces of nature - radiation - microwaves, nuclear, x-rays, uV, etc and undergoes change known as 'mutation'. So every generation changes the genetic material, so that in a 100 generations, very little of the original material remains intact. The BIG DEAL about this article is this - the genetic material is almost exactly as EVE passed it on to her child, with minor mutations equivalent to change produced over two generation. so this man Ian has the genes which would have been present in the grandchild of Eve. This low level of mutation is extremely rare to find - This is the Big Deal.

It must be a really slow news day in the UK. What would have been news was that he wasn't related to Eve.

Really such a waste of money by doing such research. every human on this planet relates to Adam and Eve

Can't they use that money on more useful research like finding a cure for terminal diseases? what a waste.
