So, what causes mutations?

Well, this is where science fiction meets science fact, sort of. In the backstory of many superheroes there will be a meeting with a radioactive substance – be it cosmic rays or radioactive waste. In real life, exposure to ionising radiation such as gamma rays, x-rays and ultraviolet rays, and some chemical mutagens (like chemicals in tobacco) can increase the incidence of mutations.

    Aren't most mutations recessive?

    I am really hungry for the knowledge of mutation..😍Thank you..

    Small mistake: human genome is not 3 million; it is 3 billion bp

    C'est surtout un grand MENSONGE de BIG PHARMA puisque un soi-disant vaccin supposé éradiquer un microbe, une bactérie, un pseudo virus, ne pourrait que tuer un organisme connu à un instant T d'un organisme "ISOLÉ" et que les laboratoires mettent environ 10 ans pour fabriquer, tester, et cibler une réponse à l'attaquant, alors qu'une mutation hypothétique impose de RECOMMENCER tout le processus de recherche etc…!

    Jamais un vaccin n'a éradiqué une attaque dite virale puisque les maladies sont d'actualité chaque années !

    Exemple : la grippe revient chaque années et les laboratoires CRIMINELS sortent un vaccin bien avant la venue de la maladie, et donc non connue et non isolée, alors qu'une campagne d'incitations à une grippo-vaccination intervient dans le monde à grands renforts de publicités par les MERDIAS propriétés des laboratoires pharmaceutiques genre Kill Bill William Henry Gates, l'autiste dégénéré, et de ses amis KHAZARO-ÉDOMITES HYKSOS PÉDOCRIMINELS CANNIBALES ADRÉNOCHROMÉS !

    Qu'elle est la recette pour "inventer" une soupe d'un sujet encore inconnu à un instant T puisque "l'INTRUS" ne s'est pas manifesté ?

    Comment sortir une réponse d'une cause, d'une chose, d'un corps étranger INCONNU puisqu'il faut des années pour mettre au point une réponse vaccinale après avoir isolé l'organisme TUEUR ?

    C'est ce qu'on appelle "CHARLATANISME" dans le jargon médical !

    Conclusion : les laboratoires pharmaceutiques inventent des soupes vaccinales bien avant que se manifestent les INTRUS MALÉFIQUES, et diffusent des injections de maladies IMAGINAIRES pour accroître la richesse des propriétaires des industries pharmaceutiques avec la complicité des pseudos politiciens qui eux, avec les pontes du corps médical, ne se vaccinent jamais, ou alors avec du sérum physiologique !

    The mutation that lowers the risk of atherosclerosis is the ONLY known one in humans that does not seem to have a secondary negative effect.

    Another mutation that is often rated as a good one is the one that leads to sickle cell anemia; this mutation gives protection against malaria mosquitoes, but on the other hand it causes severe health complications which often are mortal. I wouldn’t choose sickle cell anemia as malaria prophylaxis.

    The third one listed as beneficial is a mutation that results in bones that are significantly stronger and denser than average. A harmful effect of it is unnatural bone growth in the mouth. In the real world no good either.

    As this video correctly explains, millions of people die every year due to mutations that trigger different forms of cancer. And a recent list contains 127 genetic diseases, all of which have their origin in mutations, and that list grows longer and longer parallel to the advancing knowledge of the human genome. There are overwhelmingly more harmful, dangerous, deadly mutations than beneficial ones, and most apparently beneficial ones have negative side effects.

    The story of good mutations is a myth. Natural selection does not make the equation more evolution friendly either, since it does not only promote organisms that might have had a beneficial mutation, it also lets down and eventually destroys the organisms that have the disadvantage of genetic disorders.

    Mutations don't cause the genetic variation we see in life…that's simply reproduction and the random combination of the mother and father traits. If someone is taller than their parents, it isn't because of a mutation. Darwin's finches developed larger beaks because of random variation from their parents and then natural selection allowed them to reproduce more because of the larger beaks. Mutations had nothing to do with it.

    I really learn about mutations, it is so helpful. Do you mind if i use this for my project in the class? It will be helpful to all of us. Thank you

    Fantastic and well written video, although you made a small mistake, the human dna has 3 billion nucleotides, not 3 million

  • Posted on Jun 08, 2021 at 14:37 pm

    Watching this 10 minutes before the test

    mutation is change in genetic makeup.

  • Posted on Aug 10, 2021 at 12:48 pm

    Fantastic video . looking for more content in future

    Mutation can also be caused by pollution in fact it is the number 1 cause.

  • Posted on Aug 25, 2021 at 17:19 pm

    This definition of mutation in this video "mutation happens when 1 or more nucleotide is deleted, inserted or substituted for a different nucleotide" is going to be obsoleted. Go and and understand "epigenesis".

  • Posted on Aug 29, 2021 at 00:44 am

    DNA may be coding/non-coding.

  • Posted on Sep 07, 2021 at 10:14 am

    Just a correction, its 3 billion nucleotide, not million.
