Or can it change due to environmental factors as you go through life? I’m referring to the genetic code that you pass on to your offspring through breeding (i.e. It is my understanding that one of your risk factors for certain diseases, such as heart disease, is heredity (it’s “in your genes”). Can the risk factor you are going to pass along to your children be increased or decreased due to enviornmental stimuli you experience post-natal, especially if experienced during those early stages of development when your body is changing rapidly?)
