This review is from: The British: A Genetic Journey (Kindle Edition)
If genetic diversity is our population's best defence against disease then the British Isles should remain safe from future pandemics. A fascinating whistle-stop tour of British history punctuated by many individual stories dictated by the evidence of male (Y-chromosome) and female (mitochondrial DNA) lineages. The advice seems to be that in order for your DNA to live on, be fruitful. I may be wrong but the book suggests Bonnie Prince Charlie was from Devon and Ghenghis Khan is Prince Philip's uncle or something. Can't argue with genetic fingerprints m'lud.
