Why Lamanites Have Small Breasts

Posted by skiutah on Friday, February 15, 2013

Scientists have discovered that eastern Asians experienced a genetic mutation 35,000 years ago that is responsible for these distinctive physical traits:
* Thicker hair
* Smaller breasts
* Distinctive teeth
* More sweat glands

Here’s the NY Times article: East Asian Physical Traits Linked to 35,000-Year-Old Mutation

How did these same human evolutionary attributes get transferred to the Lamanites in America? Here are some theories:
1. Father Lehi had unmentioned eastern Asian concubine stowaways hidden in his boat.
2. The climate in eastern Asian was much warmer 35,000 years ago and extra sweat glands would have been advantageous to the hunter-gatherers who lived at that time.
3. Thick hair and small breasts are visible sexual signals which, if preferred by men 35,000 years ago, could quickly become more common as the carriers had more children than the non-carriers.
