Can we change personal traits inherited from our parents?

Recent studies in genetics revealed interesting facts. Here are the things that can be inherited:

Do you have brown eyes like your mother and long legs like your father? No wonder! All of us inherit two copies of each gene from each of our parents. But what else apart from the appearance do we get from our ancestors?

What runs in your blood? What traits did you inherit from your parents? What would you like to pass on to your children? Your commentary is welcome!

Been a vegetarian since I was 8. Had high cholesterol up to 425, 360, 260 and other numbers bad. Had trouble with the meds. After 30 years fighting it, now with lower doses, my numbers are down to a decent range. So #1 is true.

My blue eyes come from my father, however, they do adjust, depending on light, and get hints of green, which my mother has.

Joan Schmidt...from what I've heard, the Baldness Gene is passed down, from the Father, to the Daughter, who, in turn, now a Mother, herself, then passes the Baldness Gene down to her Son. So, Father to Daughter (Mother) to Son, is the Pattern. Was your own Father bald? If so, then he passed the Gene, on to you, and you're now passing it on to your Son. If he has a Daughter, then he will pass it on, to her. But, if he has Sons, he won't pass it on, to them, only their Mother can do that.

My brown eyes came from my mother, as does my cholesterol AND my good driving gene is also her genes.

Male Pattern Baldness ... they claim it is from the mother's side, but my husband's baldness is exactly like his father's. And our son has his father's hairline.
