Scientists: Humans may develop Beaks in Future to tackle with change in Modern Diet

Jul 6, 2013 15:06 IST

Dr. Gareth Fraser a scientist from Sheffield University in the first week of July 2013 claimed that humans may develop beaks in future. The evolution period may take millions of year. Frasher explained that the due process of change would see teeth fused together to form a beak.

The beak that will develop in the human will be more robust and practical and will be safe from wear and tear. As per the Scientists, the modern diets limitations in the number of teeth hampers humans as a species as the current structure of human teeth cannot suffice the requirements of new eating habits.

Scientists have argued that with our modern diets and growing elderly population, a limited amount of teeth is hampering us as a species and the current structure of human teeth cannot suffice. They have evaluated that to deal with the problem, the theory of evolution may find a way ahead.
