This content is about the recent findings that suggest Neanderthals may have went extinct because they had high levels of harmful chemicals in their bodies. Research analyzing the bones of Neanderthals from two different excavation sites in Belgium indicated that they were exposed to a wide range of toxic substances, including heavy metals and pesticides. The levels detected were significantly higher than those found in modern humans and even in the animal bones found in the same locations. The exposure to these chemicals may have led to lower fertility rates, weakened immune systems, and developmental issues in Neanderthals, ultimately contributing to their demise. The researchers believe that these harmful substances may have been obtained through the consumption of contaminated water or food sources. This study sheds light on a possible factor that could have contributed to the extinction of the Neanderthals, adding to the existing theories surrounding their decline.
