:disappointed_relieved:

yeah – my dad’s thankfully dodged it, but his brother and both his sisters have had it (both of them breast cancer), and his mum died of cancer which spread to her brain, totally awful. I’m on a breast cancer screening programme cos I’m at basically high risk of getting it too – thanks genes.

#13

Good:

  • Low chance of going bald. Thick hair.
  • Few health issues aside from mental health stuff.
  • Olive skin.
  • Teeth would be completely fine if it weren’t for an infrequent wisdom tooth problem.
  • Don’t put weight on easily.

Bad:

  • Crap eyesight, increasingly bad hearing.
  • Very hairy, including a pair of big whopping eyebrows.
  • Two of my toes are webbed, I reckon because my Greek ancestors being incestuous back in the day. Same two toes are webbed on my Mum and her Mum and her Mum and so on.

#14

Good: n/a

Bad: most of the common bad things, but not much cancer. Also got a few non-heritable genetic things showing up (eczema, weird bone condition). All topped off with West of Scotland epigenetics.

I shouldn’t exist.
