Top 10 Worst Hereditary Diseases

By Hereditary diseases we mean those diseases which are genetic in nature. These genetic disease passes from parents to their offspring. Many researchers and scientists have tried working out cure for such diseases in the answer of which they often suggest that the genetic makeup needs to be changed and modified which is infact an interference with the nature works. The list is as under;

No. 10 Alcoholism

Alcoholism refers to the addiction towards alcohol. The alcohol which is used normally for drinking purposes is refined alcohol which contains 100 percent ethanol. In the language of chemistry we call alcohol as ethanol, prepared by the distillation of 15% ethanol. It creates many problems for drinkers and alcohol addicts for the same reason it is not allowed in Islam. But recent researches report about 50 percent of the hazard for alcoholism is genetically determined. The ailment is measured genetically composite, meaning that several genes come into play and they can affect individuals differently.

No. 9 Breast Cancer


The basic reason and cause behind breast cancer is still anonymity recent yet researchers have discovered that mutation in meticulous genes such as BRCA1 and BRCA2, cause some cancers. Women who accede to the mutation tend to get cancer early in life and in both breasts.

No. 8 Color Blindness

Color blindness is a genetic disease; it refers to those who cannot distinguish red from green. The statistics suggest that more than ten million people of US cannot distinguish between red and green. However there is a saturation of disorder between the two opposite genders. Men are most likely to get this disease as compared to women because of the single X chromosome present in their human genome however in females there are two X chromosomes if one gets affected the other X chromosome will play the role of its counterpart.


No. 7 Bullying

Bullying is generally refers towards aggressiveness; the most common features of bullying includes aggressive behavior and rude attitude with others. Researchers have found that a gene that increases an individual’s risk for violence has been discovered. Researchers have also found aggressive behaviors in boys are more likely to be inherited than non-aggressive antisocial behaviors like stealing someone’s lunchbox.

No. 6 Obesity

Great size fries and a heavy set of genes is a formula for fatness. One scientific theory suggests the same genes that helped our ancestors survive famines are now working against people living in places where food is abundant. Genes have been shown to be the cause of obesity disorders such as Bardet-Biedl syndrome and Prader-Willi syndrome. Many of today’s stuffed waistlines have only to do with eating too much of the junk foods, however.


No. 5 Heart Disease

Heart diseases are of many kinds and most of them are genetic in nature such as, high blood pressure disease and heart strokes. These diseases make your heart more vulnerable to heart attacks by either weakening arteries or blocking them. Children of parents with heart and blood vessel diseases are more likely to develop them too. Secondly, a person with a hereditary heart defect is slightly more likely to have a baby with a heart defect.


No. 4 Having Twins

The episode of appearing twins in any family is a random event however sometimes fraternal twins are born again and again in families. The reason behind this fact is that the mother carries a gene that makes her to release numerous eggs during ovulation; this sort of situation is generally termed as hyperovulation. There are possibilities that a man carries the gene, in such cases probably he will not be a father of twins and evidences shows that twins often skip in generations.

No. 3 Acne

If you can’t tolerate milk, your relatives probably left cow udders alone.

No.1 Bald

Baldness is much common mostly in men; researchers and scientist still don’t know any particular reason for such disease. It is usually caused by several abnormalities in genetic makeup. The People with an uncommon sort of lasting baldness called “alopecia universalis”, lose hair all over their bodies and carry flawed hairless genes.
