The nature vs nurture controversy with regards to people’s psychological ability is something that has existed since time in memorial. Yet when we discuss health, people the world over cannot seem to put a finger on whether it is our genes, the environment in which we live in or the lifestyle which we follow, that has the maximum impact on our overall wellness.
Interestingly enough, recently, Donald Trump, the President of the United States of America went for his health check-up and despite his busy schedule, his erratic eating habits and his flamboyant lifestyle, his doctor said that he is in great shape for a man of his age. This would seem to indicate that genes do play an intrinsic role in determining one’s overall health. When considered in an objective manner, it does seem that, of the three factors, our genes seem to play the most dominant role of all.
Some common diseases that are more often than not transmitted from one generation to the next include-
- Heart Diseases,
- Blood Pressure Related Issues.
It truly cannot be denied that people who have ‘good genes’ are less susceptible to getting certain diseases.
Though genes play a major role in determining people’s health, your environment as well as your lifestyle have a part to play also. People working in a poor work environment run the risk of contracting certain life threatening and problematic diseases as well. Take for example, factory workers, who may be forced to inhale certain toxic gases on a daily basis are very likely to contract lung diseases or other breathing issues. Additionally people living terribly unhealthy lifestyles, by eating only junk food and not participating in any physical exercise are also likely to be affected by major problems. This is backed by recent research.
So, despite the fact that genes may seem to be playing the more dominant role when it comes to our health, the fact that our genes are out of our sphere of control means that we should make it a point to take care of our lifestyle and the kind of environment we expose ourselves to.
Rather than focusing on something we cannot alter it is a better idea to work on the things which are in our hands!
