Genetic Maladies

Our DNA, chromosomes and all the cells in our bodies are parts of an intricately balanced system of building blocks to our physical form.  The basis of our bodies, our very lives.  It only takes the slightest of errors, the tiniest of deviations in our genetic code to wreak havoc on our bodies.  In this category read about the people who have been touched by just such maladies, unusual diseases and more.  The intention of this category isn't to make fun of anyone, or to pity them,  but to learn about our human biology and feed the interests of the readers.
