It's All in the Genes!
Many times we hear how people justifysomeone's behavior by blaming it all on the genes this personcarries. Truly, we are affected by traits our parents, grandparentsand even previous generations of our families have carried. Geneticsare transferable, meaning that we can inherit physical traits,personalities, talents and many other things from our ancestors.
Almost every cell in our body contains 23 pairs of chromosomes. Each of these pairsis made from one chromosome from our father and one from our mother.All these carry genes, which, again, carry specific characteristicsof ourselves. Through genes, we get the specific hair color, physicalcharacteristics and many other traits, including proneness tospecific diseases.
Since our cells multiply, this kind ofgenetic information multiplies as well, being transferred onto othercells in our body. Thereby, some genes become dominant and take overother traits we have. Thus, some people have clearly visible genetictraits of some sorts, while others remain covered or completelysuppressed. Therefore, even though we might have certain genes in ourbody, we need not to be influenced by them. These can simply be thereand have no effect on us whatsoever.
Among many illnesses which areeasily transferred through our genetic predispositions, we can sufferfrom diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular problems and illnesses as wellas high blood pressure. Moreover, if we lead unhealthy lives, whilebeing prone to any of these conditions, we can make things even worseand be even more likely to suffer from them. Malnutrition, exposureto specific chemicals, environment we live in and many other factorsall contribute to this negative aspect of our genetics.
In fact, once we secure a healthy andfit life, we may bypass our genetic “fate” and avoid it by 70%.Also, our parents may undergo specific treatments if they know abouttheir genetic issues and avoid these being transferred onto theiroffspring.
Therefore, never neglect your geneticpredisposition. Be aware of it and lead a healthy, normal life inorder to counter any dangers you might suffer from, especially thosewhich have been present in your family for decades back. Eatinghealthy, staying physically active, being free of stress and enjoyinglife, being happy - these are all key factors to achieving this kind ofmental and physical bliss of well-being.
Keep this in mind and do your best notto get pulled down by some of the genetic predispositions you mighthave encrypted deeply in the smallest parts of your cells.
