    Med Hypotheses 66:769-72. 2006
    ..The C282Y mutation may have been positively selected for as it increases absorption of divalent metal ions in celiac disease and thus has a mitigating effect on the infertility which may be associated with celiac disease...

    C A Whittington
    University of British Columbia, Canada
    Med Hypotheses 67:1270-3. 2006
    ..Taken together, linking of C282Y to the Irish Gaelic male population of Connaught and establishment of an Irish origin of the C282Y mutation would point to dissemination of the C282Y mutation by Viking raiders and colonizers...
