If you’ve heard someone tell you something like, “You are a copy of your mother,” you should know that this is a false statement. In fact, we (especially women) are more like our fathers, and not our mothers. Besides, there is a theory that a father’s lifestyle before the conception of the baby, including the food he eats and how he feels, are the basis of the future health of the baby. This article will tell you about the traits that are inherited from the father and which are from the mother.
We want you to remember that even if you have good genes, you should still maintain a healthy lifestyle. Because, in the end, your lifestyle is the key factor to how you will look and feel.
Most of the time, children inherit the shape of the tip of their nose, the area around their lips, the size of their cheekbones, the corners of their eyes, and the shape of their chin. These are the key areas highlighted during facial recognition, and people whose have similar-looking areas that we mentioned above, will appear almost identical to us.
And the area between the eyebrows is often very different.
Reese Witherspoon’s daughter inherited her mother’s blue eyes, the shape of cheekbones, chin, and nose tip.
Mother’s genes are usually 50% of a child’s DNA, and father’s genes are the other 50%. However, male genes are much more aggressive than female ones, that’s why they are usually more prominent. So, there are usually 40% of active female genes and 60% of active male genes.
Besides, a pregnant woman’s body identifies the fetus as a partially alien body. In order to save the baby, it has to find peace with the aggressive father’s genes (sometimes, at the cost of her own genes).
However, it is still possible to find out which traits a child can inherit from their father and which they get from their mother.
