While DNA determines many of our traits, it appears that environmental factors such as your diet, whether or not you smoke and your wealth are more in play with our health. With more family tree and genetic data available for analysis than ever, the study by Calico Life Sciences and Ancestry.com says our genes play around 1% to 7% into our lifespan.
