Is it true that 8% of human genetic material comes from a virus?

    While the exact percentages are difficult to determine, there are various forms of retroviruses that have been known to influence the human genetic code. Also, humans would have needed to develop defense mechanisms to fight the rapidly adapting virals, in order to survive and not end up like Martians in War of the Worlds.

    I hope this helped!
