Whereas many traits have been attributed to our genetic code, from diseases to our psychosis, research teams have determined that diabetes and even cancer stem from more than a muted gene. Instead, they result from processes occuring in these areas once referred to as genomic wastelands.
If this doesn’t make you believe we have only scratched the surface of human disovery, nothing will…
