Babies are being born without wisdom teeth due to microevolution

Microevolution is a change in gene frequency within a population, which can be observed over short periods of time. This change could be a result of mutation, migration, genetic drift, and natural selection.

Scientists in Australia, led by Dr Teghan Lucas of Flinders University in Adelaide, have been analyzing the changes in humans over a short period of time, and their research has found that modern humans have shorter faces and smaller jaws due to our diets, leaving less room for teeth.
