Why Do Asian People Have Slanted Eyes?

Answer

Asian people have slanted eyes because fat accumulated over the eyes of the original Asian people to protect their eyes from the wind and sun, as Asia generally has extreme weather conditions. This trait is genetic and is referred to as plica plaperbronasalis or the Mongolian eye fold. It is estimated that 50% of Asians have slanted eyes.
