9382Most genetically diverse people on EarthPygmies, Bushmen of AfricaNot ApplicablePygmies and the bushmen of Africa are the most genetically diverse people on Earth.

A possible explanation is that our oldest ancestors came from these regions, perhaps 200,000 years ago, and that not all of them left to spread around the world. Therefore the pygmies and bushmen represent the survivors of the original human population.
