If you are going to become a parent soon, you are probably wondering whether your child will look more like you or your parent or maybe your ancestors. Unfortunately, it isn’t possible to predict that unless your child is born. Or is it? Well, science has come a long way and there is actually several scientific rules which can be used to predict your kid’s appearance. Read on to find out.
1.Strong VS Weak Genes
You have probably wondered at some point in your life why there are so few twins and look-alikes on this planet especially when there are over 7 billion people in this world. The answer to that question is genetics.
The thing is even if there are only a few attributes such as eye colour, hair type etc., when you start listing out their combination, the number is gigantic because there are so many possible combinations. However, these characteristics may seem random at first but there is actually a scientific principle governing this phenomenon.
If you check the strong and weak genes and try to make their combinations, you will soon reach a pretty big number because the number of possible combinations is quite huge. In fact, that is one of the main reasons why there are so many varieties in this world. However, there is still a pattern that one can use to predict the genetic characteristics.
