There is a large group of diseases for which a genetic predisposition has been established. The development of such diseases depends on the interaction of environmental factors and heredity of the individual.
The diversity of genes ensures the genetic uniqueness of each individual. Variations in genetic material shape both differences in physical characteristics (e.g., eye color, height) and the body's response to external influences. If a person with a predisposing genotype is exposed to conditions that provoke the manifestation of genetic traits, a corresponding disease develops.
