Before a baby comes to the world, estimates are made about who she will look like from the ultrasound pictures. Generally speaking, “if she is a girl looks like to the aunt, if he is a boy looks like to the uncle” is true somehow. Apart from these physical features we wonder, the fact that the illness, academic achievement and social communication are inherited from parents is in fact us. Fathers are more effective in character formation while but mothers are the deciding factors in babies personality traits. Here are the features inherited from your parents…
- Fingerprint: Fingerprints are personal and all are different from one another. However, some of the lines and curves can be inherited from father to child.
- Dimples: Dimple is defined as “muscle weakness” but these genes also come from the father.
- Baldness: The most important factor is the X chromosome. For this reason, boys inherit this feature from their mother. We cannot say that mothers are influential solely because X chromosomes also transferred from fathers. The environmental conditions have also influence.
- Height: The height of the child is determined by the genes of father substantially. The boys having long fathers more likely to be long.
- Mental Health and Disorders: Although it is difficult to understand the functioning and the structure of the human brain, children with schizophrenia, depression, hyperactivity and attention deficit are four times more likely to suffer from these diseases.
- Heart Problems: Experts say that 20% of men carry a gene that is associated with heart disease. This gene increases heart conditions by up to 50% and is transmitted by the father to the child.
- Intelligence: We are all aware that intelligence is versatile since it contains logical, emotional, social, verbal etc. versions. But if not all, the logical (mathematical) intelligence that affects academic success is inherited from mother in boys; and in the case of girls, both mother and father are determinative.
- Color Blindness: Color blindness is more common in boys because of the “X Chromosome” genes transferred from their mothers. Since girls also take X chromosome from their father; a color-blind father might have a color-blind daughter.
- Myopia: This disease, known as distant non-seeing, has a 50% chance of being present in children if both parents have. It is not true to blame just the genes on this, and the remaining 50% is affected by environmental conditions.
