comment What is the word to describe a symptom that when people did something, they tend to do it again without noticing about it?
When does doing something for the second, third, fourth... Nth time become habit? You might have better luck looking for such a word on English SE

Why doesn't habit or habitual suit?

comment Limb polarity such as writing handedness, golf handedness and natural football foot
The golf could differ purely because it is easier to get hold of right handed clubs - that's why my lefty brother plays right handed. The other examples don't use "handed" kit do they? (Maybe Hockey, but with it being one stick versus a whole bag of clubs that contributes to greater availability of kit - parents can buy their right handed first child a right-handed stick and second [left handed] child a left handed stick, but can afford to buy two sets of golf clubs)

comment Do females living on mountains have more RBCs than a normal male
Specific altitudes that you had in mind. The male and female. <8586m is not specific, it is anywhere from 0-8586.

your edits still do not provide enough clarification and suggest that it is medical advice you seek (it regards someones specific RBC count).

comment What causes Acne?
@TomášZato I didn't look it up - I was asking the OP to do it so the correct meaning of COCP was used (if there is more than one). The responsibility lies with the OP, not me, I was just asking for clarification on the abbreviation and other points to make the post meet the guidelines.

comment Is there any measure by which the Germans today could be called a genetically superior race?
I think this is very much a duplicate of the question mentioned above & (despite the authors efforts) agree with Daniel that it reflects badly on the site - the underlying question is largely inoffensive but the concept of superiority is not necessary and likely to cause unnecessary deviation from the question itself. Personally I think that the essence of the question is "Has the eugenics program implemented by the Nazi regime left any real effects on genetics & genetically caused traits in the populations of the people it affected?"
