Are humans still evolving? This question is a mystery for many, as about seven million years have passed since humans left the chimpanzee lineage. The factors that forced us to adapt, evolve, and survive harsh environments in the past are no longer relevant.

The external factors (also known as selection pressures) that previously kept us in continuous survival mode don’t affect us anymore.
