However, plants do meiosis to create haploid cells that allow the plant to divide with out spores, or germination. An organism would need to undergo the process of mitosis when it is sick and needs more white blood cells, to grow, and to repair it’s self. However, meiosis is mainly for reproduction. I personally feel that the diversity of cells that can be created from meiosis is where evolution starts. This would be the root of the needed changes. Besides, evolutions

This would cause identical DNA instead of having that diversity that would normally occur. In addition, to meiosis not occurring in humans this could produce a more advanced race of beings.
