Presenting at the British Science Festival, Prof Spikins suggested that healthcare and a caring response to vulnerability has had a more significant impact our evolution than we thought.
Recent skeletal evidence from Neanderthals – a now extinct, ancient human species – shows that medical care for the ill and injured happened much earlier than previous studies indicated.
It also appeared to be more extensive and far more significant than we realised, suggesting it had a high social value. Of the 50 Neanderthal skeletons that exist, 17 of them showed evidence they had been cared for.

just saying maybe we should implement new legislation , you cant be a politician if you lack compassion and empathy
or even the part of your brain that does this .
No narcissism in office , no sociopaths in office
yes submit politicians to brain scans before taking office and being put in charge of an entire population of human beings
who require social care and compassion from those who are stronger.
I'd be happy with that .
Maybe we would get somewhere for once
