Inbreeding still happens more than we know, I think.
Also my doctor told me the reason my DNA is so messed up is because I'm Jewish (fun fact, so is he). "It's because of all the inbreeding after the war."

Isn't it the Ashkenazi known for genetic disorders due to inbreeding throughout the many years? Guess it doesn't help that they were a religious minority on top of it.

Just so happens that's the form I am (not religious, just am Ashkenazi).

I remember in college saying the initial group was only like 250 or something? Maybe less. It's been years since college

No need to be exact for the time being. I just know inbreeding has sucked for this part of the tree.

As "infamous" as the south is for inbreeding it's actually really uncommon. The only place it happened was in the mountains due to mountains being so hard to travel around most people could only marry within their hometown and nowhere else.

I've read about it in a lot of manga, the way families are formed in villages that can't easily travel to get new blood. Then again I've also read some pretty gruesome stories about those villages too (like zombie type of gruesome, stuff of horror).

Really if you live in a first world country at this point you have zero reason to resort to incest if you're not part of some fringe cult or something.

Drastically to the point even people in the same country can be so different
