The Real Reason Why Most Of Us Look More Like Our Dads Than Our Moms

The Real Reason Why Most Of Us Look More Like Our Dads Than Our Moms

Women no longer have to fear that they will become another version of their mother. As humans, our genetics are not inclined to support that anyway. It is scientifically proven that genetics cause people to look and behave more like their dads than their moms. In fact, as a woman, you might have frequently been told throughout your life that you look like your father. Well, there is a reason for that. Science shows us why you have your daddy’s eyes.

Your dad has more genetic influence

Research has shown that 60% of genes express parent-of-origin effects from the father. It was originally thought that only 95 genes express the parent-of-origin effect. Now it’s known that thousands of your genes express themselves according to what your dad added to the genetic pool.

Did you know that you don’t use an equal amount of genes from both parents? As you grow and develop throughout life, genes can be turned on and off. However, genes that come from your mother simply don’t express themselves the way that your father’s do. The genome that makes up all that is you uses more DNA from your father. The dominant genes from your father have a greater impact on the outcome of who you are.

You might want to understand your genome better. To do this, have a closer look at your dad. Genes express themselves according to whether they come from your mother or your father. If you received a genetic mutation from one of your parents, it might hide or reveal itself according to where you got the gene from.

It’s more likely to think like your mom and look like your dad

Pardo-Manuel de Villena, of the University of North Carolina School of Medicine, confirmed that mammals express more genes from the father. The information from the study shows that genetic mutations can show up and is more likely to happen if the mutation is from your father. For example, a “bad mutation” in your genetics is good news for you if it comes from your mother. You’re far less likely to ever express that “bad mutation”. Villena’s research helped determine that in spite of the fact that you receive equal parts DNA from your mom and dad, you use more DNA from your father.

However, there is hope for your mother’s genes. The paternal genome contributes more to muscle tissue while the maternal genes mainly contribute to the brain. So while you’re genetically influenced by your father in most ways, you might still think like your mother.

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

1. Smart Door Locks

A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

2. Smart Kitchen Tools

Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.
