Why can animals breed with relatives but humans can’t?
Why can’t humans breed with relatives just like animals do? Do not breed with a relative has been a major belief mostly popular among Christians.
Not just the Christians all over the world, they have been this accepted belief by at least 99% of the world population that breading or getting married to a close relation or a relation is not a good thing to do.
Although, many who keep to this belief really don’t know why they do and the replications of getting involved in such an act.
The Holly Bible also warns against this strictly. So let’s look at some cases of inter-breeding and why you shouldn’t be a victim.
The case of the Whitakers, America’s most famous inbred family.
In the wired photo, you see above is a particular lonely family that resides In Odd, West Virginia.
Little is known about them because of their secrecy, besides the fact that their numerous physical and mental flaws are almost certainly the result of excessive inbreeding.
According to Discover Magazine research, inbred offspring have poorer cognitive and pulmonary performance and are more susceptible to illnesses in general. It also discovered that inbred kids have a higher chance of developing rare recessive genetic diseases.

Unfortunately, inbreeding is a widespread issue in that region of West Virginia.
Numerous additional instances have been documented throughout history, particularly in royal families like the Hapsburgs, who completely vanished in the 18th century as a result of their notorious inbreeding.

This one had trouble walking. He needed a cane to support himself because his left foot of his had necrosis (dead tissue). In his tomb, archaeologists discovered more than a hundred canes.
He had weak bones and a weakened immune system, as shown by computed tomography (CT) scanning of his mummified and molecular genetic analysis. Despite having absolute power, he wasn’t very happy with it. He passed away at the early age of 18 from natural causes.
You may now believe that inbreeding is OK in the case of nonhuman animals, but it is just as harmful to humans.

An instance of the wolves on Isle Royale in Lake Superior, Michigan(US).
There are only two male and female wolves left in the area’s wolf population.
They are even more inbred than the historical human cases mentioned above, with a kinship that is so tight that it left scientists without “words to explain it.”
They were born to the same mother two years apart and are a father and daughter as well as half-siblings.
This couple formerly had a bizarre, abnormal-appearing pup, but it has since disappeared.
Inbreeding typically causes genetic abnormalities in both nonhuman and animal species.
So, dear reader, the next time you intend to sleep with your sister, at the very least use birth control.
