We used to think that high cholesterol is associated with unhealthy lifestyle. Well – known fact- to live a long happy life, you need to eat more vegetables and fruits, to exercise regularly.

However, sometimes high cholesterol is not dependent on lifestyle and your genes. In this case, even a healthy diet and active lifestyle will help to avoid raising cholesterol.

2. The possibility of baldness.

From parents we inherit the sensitivity of hair follicles to one of the hormones, which contributes to baldness. It causes a degeneration of the follicles resulting in hair thinning and discolored, are transformed into vellus hairs that don’t cover the bald spot.

3. Intelligence.

It is known that at least 60% of mental ability is inherited. Moreover, we inherit from our mothers and not from their parents. In addition to genetics, the formation of mental capacity is also affected by the relationship between the child and mother. Than it is stronger, the better the kids solve complex problems.

4. Love for coffee.

It can be caused genetically. Scientists have found that the owners of the PDSS2 gene drank less coffee than those who do not. This gene is responsible for the breakdown of caffeine, causing the substance to remain longer in the body.

5. Diabetes in children and adolescents.

Genetically transmitted tendency to diabetes and not the disease itself. Risk factors for its development is obesity, pancreatic disease, stress, which are accompanied by a release of adrenaline, etc.

Diabetes type 1 diabetes can be inherited through generations, therefore, healthy parents can be born a sick child.
