Slowly making the public aware that a lot of those soapboxes are rotting.
A bit at a time. From ScienceDaily, US National Institutes of Health wants us all to know this:
Four ways inheritance is more complex than Mendel knew
Today, we know that inheritance is far more complex than what Mendel saw in his pea plants. Our scientists who track progress in genetics research funded by NIH’s National Institute of General Medical Sciences share some of the things researchers have learned about how traits are passed from one generation to the next. More.
1. Some of our genes come only from Mom.
2. The environment may have the potential to trigger molecular changes that pass from generation to generation.
3. One trait can be controlled by hundreds of genes.
4. Genes can tag along for generations.
Also, people, do dispose of the rotting soapboxes safely. (Eugenics boxes to be flagged as hazardous waste.)
