Genes or Lifestyle: Which Has the Greatest Impact on Health?

Posted by Frank Herold on Jan 25, 2018 12:41:38 PM

The good news is your genes are not in the driver's seat when it comes to most medical conditions. You are. According to WebMD, "…for most people, a healthy lifestyle trumps inherited risk."

Heart disease and diabetes are two of the most common worries for people as they age. Although more than 100 genes may slightly increase the risk of heart disease, the biggest factors in reducing risks are maintaining a healthy weight and diet, exercising, and not smoking.
