Each one of us has a unique set of chemical blueprints affecting how our body looks and functions. These blueprints contained in our DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) are inside our body cell. Genes are also found in a specific segment along the length of human DNA; meanwhile, the genetic make-up will determine various conditions and diseases. Most of us have already known about our family’s long medical history. Still, they might not be aware of what type of inheritable conditions and how different diseases are connected.
