ANI News: Distinguished University Professor Cynthia Beall and other researchers found genetic changes that allow Ethiopians to live and work more than 1.5 miles above sea level without getting altitude sickness. “Altitude affects your thinking, your breathing, and your ability to sleep. But high-altitude natives don’t have these problems,” she said.
