DNA. The building blocks of life
Trillions of cells that make up your body contain DNA, also known as deoxyribonucleic acid. It serves as a blueprint that determines the physical features of all living things, including you! It looks like a twisted ladder or, as scientists
call it, a ‘double helix’. Besides, your parents passed on this genetic information, which is why it is ‘hereditary’, making you unique.
Since the discovery of DNA in the 1950s, scientists have been investigating the human genome. Scientists have established links for many aspects of human health, like how genes influence disease risk, metabolism, food intolerances, response to exercise and many personality traits. You can learn what
your DNA says about you thanks to significant technological advances.
