Natural selection is a fundamental principle of nature applied to all living beings.
Humans since their irrational origin, instinctively look for the most physically perfect and better adapted to their environment for being partners to procreate.
This attitude is necessary for the preservation and evolution of species.
Civilization brought greater knowledge about the human body and its diseases, which are also part of the individual characteristics.
The desire to eliminate imperfections makes each human look for a partner who does not have the same own physical imperfections and diseases so that their descendants will be prevented of inherit the ancestors’ defects.
Scientific advances in health have allowed the animals breeding by means of artificial inseminations of physically superior male sperm in females with favorable appropriate characteristics.
Another possibility is the insertion of embryos from almost perfect couples in a female’s uterus, regardless of the recipient’s physical quality. This knowledge is also used in humans, for natural and artificial reproduction.
