Do you have good genes?

    I know most of you will never procreate, but let's imagine you have a baby someday; do you think you have good genes to pass on to future generations?

    Some things to have in mind:

    - Genetic health problems. Maybe you have a genetic disease or maybe you don't have the disease but you are the damaged gene carrier.
    Or maybe it's not even official but some people in your family suffer from a specific condition that could be passed to your own children too. This goes for mental problems as well. Cases of extreme ugliness also count as a disadvantage (not being shallow here because I don't really care but humans are suppose to improve in all departments).

    So , are you breeding material?

    Someone complimented me on my ass just yesterday in my jeans, so yes I would say they're quite good.

    Ohhhh.......those kind of genes. Yes, they're very good also. Everyone in my family lived into their late 80's or 90's with minimal health issues. With all the dirt bike stunts I've done and ramp jumping, it's amazing I've never had a broken bone. So yes David, I think you and I will make excellent breeding material. I know those anal babies never live but in the name of science we must keep trying! icon_twisted.gif

    Genetics, good topic, just like nature vs nurtureā€¦ A lose lose subject. I have a 20 yr old son who is build like his mothers side of her family. Im tall, slim, long legs and he is short ( shorter than I) with 'pool table legs, a big fat ass and built like all the men on his mothers side. Which means short and round with asses like you aint neva seen before!!! But he has the face and personality of an angel. :lol . I love him!!!

    May be, you should stop flushing them down the toilet.

    Interesting discussion.

    My family doesn't seem to have the typical problems like diabetes, cancer, cholesterol , etc.

    My family me to seem to have high blood pressure and congestive heart failure but that is late in life 70s/80s and funnily enough no sign of cholesterol ,etc with that condition.

    Just an observation but my sisters and I seemed to have inherited my dad's foot problems and issues with sleeping , sleep apnea. (Might explain the blood pressure issues)

    My family has a long line of genetic Deafness on my dad's side. So it's possible I could have Deaf kids but for me that is not a big deal just a way of life which I am completely accustomed to living.

    So. I would say we're are breeding stock, lol.

    i have shitty genes. every male on my mom's side has had some kind of heart problem or stroke or kind of cancer. have had two aunts die of cancer, one at 42, the other at 55.

    I already know I probably wont live longer than 65/66. :/

    I think being gay is natures way of telling me to not procreate. Depression runs in my moms family, I have strong allergies, from my dads side come heart-problems (which I don't have yet), colon-issues (which are just beginning...), deafness in one ear (which I'm cultivating, it's handy sometimes). To top it of I also have a varicocele, to make extra sure I don't make babies.

    Cut it out, nature! I can take a hint.

    I believe so.. I dont have asthma, high blood pressure, diabetes, etc. I was considered "freakishly strong" before I even began working out.

    I plan to have a kid of my own someday so i'm glad I don't have to worry about my genes icon_biggrin.gif

    Interesting topic. As to the procreation issue, the chief genetic "deficiency" I've ultimately discovered is that a number of the most talented in the family have all been gay or probably gay, so that reproduction by them has been minimized. Because of the extensive history of my family in this country, including the possibility of exhumation of 17th, 18th and 19th century family graves in New England, I've long thought we'd be good candidates for some sort of DNA study.

    My genes are ok, I mean they could worse. I think the main concern for my offspring is that they would be at a higher risk for adult-onset diabetes. Speaking of potential procreation, I should get my "little swimmers" checked...never had that done before and it would be great to know where I stand icon_biggrin.gif

    My genes are sought-after for it's youthful regenerative properties.

    I have passed my good genes; however, I didn't chose wisely and my daughter seems to have inherited her mother's nasty bitch genes.

    or maybe you just suck as a dad and blame her mother's genes on that.

    By the way, the environment where someone is raised plays an important role in the development too but this thread is about the genetic information only.

    My family has no history of heart disease, cancer or any kind of allergy. I guess that counts as good genes.

    Evidence by your behavior on these threads I'd say you are the one with the sucky parents.

    i have a clotting factor 7 disorder causing unexpected or faster than average clotting. Only one parent had the gene. If booth parents carried this gene my understanding it would be a critical issue.

    apparently not a lot is known on how blood is told to clot.
    if you had an unexpected blood clot form after say a broken arm you should get the test done.

    Hard to tell... I definitely got swatted with the ugly stick. I guess that if women instinctively hate you, by definition, those aren't good genes.

    Longevity wise: Most of my Great Grandparents lived around 100 years. The next two generations were much shorter-lived. But they also smoked, drank, watched TV and ate Cheeto's all their lives. My Grandparents generation mostly lived to around 80 (except a couple who died much earlier of lung cancer or diabetes) and my parents generation barely made it to 70, for the most part. My parents never, ever drank water. It had to be soda pop or alcohol or whole milk.

    So I'm hoping the genes are set at 100. Plus or minus lifestyle choices.

    Mine have so many genetic anomalies for the positive I've been being studied by various Universities for the last 15 or so years. Among the best are the medullary cavity's in my bone's don't calcify completely so if I break a bone the hard elastic like consistency on my medullary cavity's hold my bone together and allow me to still use it. A broken ankle is no more debilitating than a sprain. Also my Telomeres are roughly 20% longer and degrade slower than normal so I age slower than most people, UCSF have been very interested in this aspect. I seem to heal faster than normal as well, about 40% faster and no one can figure out why, yet. I don't think I'd procreate though, mainly because I like my freedom and having money,icon_biggrin.gif, but also because no one's looking to see what kind of negative anomalies are hiding in there along with the positive. icon_neutral.gif

    I'm thankful to be alive and well with good genes. Interesting this was posted today, since I just did my oral presentation on artificial genetics in class. Hmmm...icon_neutral.gif

    Most of my good genes come from my mom and bad genes from my dad. I'm not breeding material because I tried to become a sperm donor, but I'm too short. That short spell is from my dad.
