Everyone carries the "acne gene" , most people, however, do not encounter their trigger.
Maybe. Because the issue isn't necessarily the genes. Turns out after all the mapping was done, we don't have that many genes. It's the enzymes. And they are switched on and off by what you do to yourself or by what your parents did and then are passed down to you. In the study involving epigenetics & diabetes prone people, they found it took a few generations for the switch back to 'normal.'

What about those with the Huntington's gene or other dreaded genetic disorders? That can't really be switched off or can it? I'm curious.
