In a recent study, researchers found the genome of an ancient human; thy analyze this genome in a piece of “chewing-gum.” And this ancient human lived around 5700 years ago in southern Denmark (current name of the place). Researchers said this genome got from human bone. According to the researchers from the University of Copenhagen said the DNA was acquired from teeth mark, which she has left on the old chewing gum. That chewing gum was made up of a birch tree and some chewable tar. Found in her tooth by the archeological department in the past, and they provide this critical information to the researchers of the university. Though they analyze what woman ate and what kind of germs she was carried in her mouth. This research is actually open numerous clues about ancient women’s lifestyle. In a study of old chewing gum, found that it was very light and easy to chew. And by the assumptions of preserved teeth and bones, scientists say that chewer was a lady. The DNA on which scientists are doing research they found that she had dark skin, blue eyes, and brown hair. Because she was from Danish island, researchers gave her name as “Lola.” This kind of combination trait previously observed in European hunter-gatherers.
Ancient humans sometimes chewed birch pitch as an adhesive stone tool or as weapons. In ancient times chewing has a different kind of purpose, such as medicine or malleable for glue use else for recreational purposes like modern chewing gum. Besides, scientists found that Lola finished her meal in which include mallard duck and hazelnuts and no dairy food because she was energetic of lactose. Researchers from the University of Copenhagen said: “This is an astonishing fact about the ancient human genome rather than bone.” The DNA will be preserved by archaeologists, which helps the researcher to discover many bacterial species that are the oral microbiome. By the retained tooth and boons, it is easy to predict for “pathogen.” How will “pathogen” behave in the future?
