Incest = Inbreeding
According to the Britannica Concise Encyclopedia, Sexual relations between persons who, because of the nature of their kinship ties, are prohibited by law or custom from intermarrying. The incest taboo is generally universal, although it is imposed differently in different societies. Usually, the closer the genetic relationship between two people, the stronger and more highly charged is the taboo prohibiting or discouraging sexual relations. Some sociobiologists consider that inbred populations have diminished reproductive success and become gene pools for hereditary disorders.
An anonymous poster has shared a link to a article regarding the inbred of Goats. For many years, Scientist have used "animals" to advance their research methods.
When humans inbred and or form incestuous relationships, their children are born with many genetic disorders and most disorders are hermaphroditic.
Most recently, a article was written on a local breeder name Peter Girard. Peter was granted permission to import a 50 year old goat semen to father a new sect of Goats.
In this article, Peter revealed that there's an ongoing problem with inbreeding animals and it was not uncommon for grandparents to breed with grandchildren.
When the semen of a grandparent becomes "breeded" with their grandchildren the process is called "Inbreeding".
This process has led to many genetic health problems. According to Peter, "There are goats who are hermaphrodites [both sexes at once] or have defects with their udders or internally,".
Now - I am aware that humans are not Goats and Goats aren't humans.
But - I am aware that within the fields of Science, researchers are known to advance their studies in humans with the use of animals.
