How Does the Environment Effect Your Genes?

This is an assignment for science. We’re supposed to blog about how your environment can effect your genes.

The environment is described as your surroundings. It’s the landscape, the air you breathe, whether its hot or cold, if you live in a city or in the suburbs, and where you work or go to school. What we need to know is how it affects our genes. Well, if you live in a city where the air is very polluted, your genes will probably give you a higher chance of getting lung disease. If you live in a place that’s very sunny, you will probably have the genes that give you light skin. A third example of how the environment can affect your genes is if you live in a place that’s cold, you will probably get the genes that lets you have more body hair.
