A news website has a medical feature about avoiding or reducing medical conditions that may be hereditary. The author, a doctor, states that just because one’s parents had a condition such as diabetes, the person should not automatically assume she will have this. She should avoid any behavior that could lead to the condition. In this way, a person could either avoid the condition or delay it until later in life. The doctor’s point is that lifestyle habits as well as genetics determine whether a person will develop a medical condition.
