      But this is weak in Sweden despite Sweden having the lowest lactose intolerance

        Yeah and that haplogroup didnt originated in the Netherlands, but Holstein where it's lower than the surrounding areas. Founder effect just means that the people who settled Scandinavia and the British isles were part of a group that carried these lactose tolerant genes but due to a bottleneck they all got the gene

      Obviously haplogroups are only related due to autosomal correlation. LCT was present in Yamnaya and Corded Ware. It entered the European Population 3000-2000 BC. Then simple selection made it more popular in some areas than others. Probably depended on how much ancients relied on Raw Milk consumption.

    Different climate and isolation meant the British isles and Scandinavia were still mostly hunter gatherers when raw milk swigging Indo-Europeans swept through.

      BS. We were not Hunter Gatherers. We farmed too, just more cattle husbandry than others perhaps.

        most of europe has no ancestry tied to the middle east, hunter gatherers farmed. Farmers were on average 75% WHG, some were nearly 100%. WHG farmed and was absorbed into farmer cultures, similarly hunter gatherers were accepting farmers into their cultures.

      lmao the British Isles wasn't mostly hunter gatherers at the time of the Indo-European invasions. Both Britain and Ireland had settled farming populations. Haven't you ever seen Stonehenge or Newgrange?

        Its worth saying that by the Bell beaker arrival the farmers had actually largely abandoned intensive grain-based agriculture in favor of more sheep and cattle herding. This was the period when Newgrange and Stonehenge were built. This probably had an important impact on encouraging the spread of lactase persistence.

      Poverty. The thought of drinking a literal poison that makes you shit yourself won't come to your mind unless you're starving. Yamnaya weren't starving, Meds weren't starving, Slavs weren't starving, both Germanics and Britons were.

            If you were just a tiny bit smarter, you'd know that people ate born with lactose tolerancy because we're fricking mammals, we get fed with milk since our infancy. And some people retain that tolerancy, this is why it's called lactose *persistence*. There is nothing poisonous about milk.

        Might not be a very popular opinion, but it's true.
        If there had been a things a potato intolerance, it would've been completely absent among the Irish.

          It's not true at all. They quite wealthy, due to the Amber and tin trades in Scandinavia and Britain respectively. But also based on physical anthropology. They were extraordinarily well developed compared to other populations in Europe at the time that lactase persistence was becoming common. It was founder effects.

    Another map which proves that Italians are utter mongrels compared to Spaniards

    I wonder who and how someone create these maps. They always paint them with the same divisions for whatever they want. There is no survey about lactose tolerance so I don´t know where they get the data from.

    Regarding Spain all the people I have known in my life since school were able to drink milk raw.

    And it is even more funny since southern spaniards (green on that map) descend from northern spaniards (orange) after Reconquista.

    It became super common in this regions due to famines forcing people to rely more on dairy to survive. These occurred in the LBA and IA.

            If a Swede with Haplogroup R9P00P33 moves to African and fricks a Bantoid woman, and they make a son who fricks a Bantoid woman, and they make a son who fricks a Bantoid woman, and so on for 32 generations, the 33rd generation's sons will all have R9P00P33 despite being 99.99% Bantoid.

    It just means the people from those regions died from poopshit/starvation when they relied on milk for food and there was selective pressure on the population for lactase persistence.
