refers to all the physical matter humans (like all living creatures) must take in on a recurring basis; only partially for energy. Like all life on planet humans are open systems which keep tearing down their structure & require intake of atoms/molecules from which to rebuild their structure. Intestinal lining cells replaced ~every 3 days. CaPO4 in bones ~every 6 years, ...Read more

Perspective: Immune system is inherited & important; however disease also depends upon the virulance or severity of the attack or insult upon that immune system together with outside environmental contributing factors.

Pride in yourself: Stay with it. Remember why. Acne is a grave personal and professional liability. Your life will be far better once you're through it. Life is cruel and unfair, and you'll discover that once your face is clear, people treat you better. Comply with your lab work and appointments. And be grateful for scientific medicine that's made this possible. Best wishes. ...Read more
A strong role: Alcoholism runs in families- if you have a first-degree relative who is an alcohol dependent, you have 3 to 4 times increased risk of becoming alcohol dependent. Genetics are figured to account for roughly 50% of your risk of developing alcohol dependence. Similar relationships exist for other substances; initiation is situational, but whether that becomes an addiction depends on one's genetics. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Cannot quantify: Hi. We cannot quantify what percentage is genetic and what percentage is environment in height or any other phenotype, but under normal circumstances (adequate nutrition, etc), for height it's mostly genetic. Disease can be classified in that assessment of phenotype as either environment or genetic, depending. ...Read more
Yes: Krabbe is a genetic inherited condition. It is inherited in an autosomal recessive fashion. That means that for a patient with krabbe, both parents are usually carriers of the abnormal gene called galc. Those parents will have a 25% chance of having another affected child and a 50% chance of having children that are carriers. ...Read more

Indirectly, yes: Salt (sodium chloride and others, some with potassium) separates into ions in the body, and these ions play with the acidic and basic molecules in many ways. So a lack or excess of salt can change the electrolyte numbers in response to an acid/base derangement. For instance, potassium usually leaves the cells in acidosis causing an increase; if you're already deficient, that may not be noticeable. ...Read more
Unclear: Lots of interest currently in the interplay of genetic background of a population and environmental triggers. No one clear winner here, but studies of large populations are seeing some patterns emerge with regard to annual sunshine exposure, vitamin d (and its receptor), epstein barr virus (mononucleosis) infection at a critical time in life, possibly smoking as contributing to risk for ms. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
