If cancer, obesity, or heart conditions run in the family, we may expect to suffer from these diseases as well, since the traits were thought to be controlled by the genes passed down by the parents. This concept in biology is called genetic determinism

The cover of this LIFE magazine asks Were you born that way? The main story is the belief that genes control our physical and behavioral traits. It is thought that at birth, the genes in the fertilized egg determine the characteristics of our lives.

The important point here is that information only goes in one direction. The DNA shapes the body and its behavior, but the experiences of the body cannot send information back to the DNA. In other words, this hypothesis states that genes control our lives and we cannot control or influence our genes.

Today I would like to talk about the new biology, which I am very excited about.

In 1953, James Watson and Francis Crick discovered the structure of DNA, the molecule from which genes are made. DNA was thought to control an organisms traits and characters, and science referred to this discovery as being the Secret to Life.
