Type II diabetes is rampant in my mother’s family.
I normally think of a heritable physical defect as being attributable to a recessive gene, and anticipate that natural selection will weed out individuals displaying that trait. Turns out the gene isn’t necessarily recessive; and in this case natural selection did not play a role because the disease (the physical defect) did not appear until the population’s diet changed.
Even then, as to this defect, natural selection is unlikely to play a role, since the disease does not begin to affect longevity until after the age when an individual has already produced young and raised them to adulthood.

Duelling ad campaigns: Two current, intense TV ad campaigns, using almost identical visuals, of all things, come from opposite directions concerning a proposed casino at National Harbor.
