    is added that "the more mutations the better." Would someone who
    knows something about this please make a comment.

    Well, in that part of the mtDNA I do not know how much effect they could have. It's the nuclear DNA that controls everything.

    Mutations result in variety. Some are beneficial- such as if they result in a stronger immune system or faster metabolism (in most climates, that is). Some are neutral. Some are detrimental- such as the one that results in Hemophilia A.

    A very interesting one is the ability to digest lactose as an adult. I wonder why is it so prevalent in Caucasoid people, while very rare in Negroid and Mongoloid people. I'm lactose tolerant and a total rat. In fact, if I do not consume dairy, I need to eat much more than what I usually do in order to keep my energy levels.
