Pubic lice leapt from gorillas to early humans

A genetic analysis of pubic lice suggests the parasites were transferred between early humans and gorillas about 3.3 million years ago.

Researchers say the findings suggest close contact between our ancestors and gorillas. But they claim it is far more likely that early humans caught the lice from sleeping in abandoned gorilla nests than from having sex with gorillas.
