    Default Why Are Middle Eastern And Indian Men So Hairy?

    What is the evolutionary reason?

    I mean if it is due to hot climate, then why dont average Africans have as much hair?

    Are you going to show some study of Body Hair Index or is your word as infallible on the matter?

    Really, Anethema needs some rules about making new threads that are just assertions without any form of evidence.

    Because the austronesian expansion happened so late that no evolution in terms of body hair has had time to occur ?

    Do you have a lot of experience with hairy Middle Eastern and Indian Men?

    ...



    Actually, it's probably due more to just a fleeting impression than an actual attribute. Even if it turns out to be true, there's really nothing there to be selected for. (That I can think of.) So, I'd just chalk it up to one of those little tagalong traits that happens to get passed down.

    I don't have a lot of experience with Hairy Middle Eastern Men, Hairy Indians or relatively Hairless African Men so, I can't really tell if the question is even valid.

    In Grade 11 one of my Indian friends had a full beard. We were 15/16 then, and even now a few years later I'm still waiting for something more substantial than a half-beard to cover my face...

    Every group has individuals that get an excess of hair.

    I have noticed that southern Europeans and Middle Easterners are much hairier than northern Europeans, it seems the further north you go the less hairy people are.(that is inside Europe...I know Asians, Native Americans etc. have almost no body hair at all)

    Some Indians are hairy, some aren't. Some people are, some aren't. I don't see any particular group that is more hairy than another. Whites have some of the most hairy people though, they look almost hypertricosian, and they frequent swimming pool changing rooms. They like to walk around naked, which isn't quite as bad as it sounds because the hair covers everything up.
    Darwinism doesn't suggest that we should be all-wise and do what is going to be best for our selfish genes. Rather it builds into our brains rules of thumb which worked in our ancestral past.

    The evolutionary question isn't why are some people hairy, the question is why are some people not hairy.

    Aren't Mediterranean people the hairiest? On the other hand you have Slavic people which are close to hairless; my theory is that since they migrated from Asia thousands of years ago they also brought the "hairless" DNA which is prevalent in Asian people.

    So then I guess why do Asians have less hair? Is it due to lower testosterone level? If yes when why do Asians have lower testosterone? Is it because they are the descendants of African 'wusses' who got kicked out due to inability to physically compete and migrated to East?

    Or did I already answer all my own questions? LOL

    hair

    well one of the most accepted theorys of why humans are not hairy, blames early human gatherings. As a human pack grows, it is easier for parasites as ticks to be transmited, thus less hairy humans hwo had less ticks and thus less chances pf contracting illneses survived.


    the op question seems rather subjective.
