We are thinking about research project to study the effects of parental
consanguinity (inbreeding) on human longevity. We made a search of
scientific literature in this field and found that this topic was not
studied before. May be we overlooked some of the previous studies on this
topic? If so, please advise.
Thank you in advance.
