There’s an add for a cholesterol-fighting pill that mentions that it fights both food-based and genetic causes of the problem. In the ad, they say that you get your cholesterol not only from that “frank you eat at the ballpark, but also from your uncle Frank; not only from this Virginia ham, but also from your Aunt Ginny.” Or somesuch.
Umm, guys? You don’t get genetic heritage from your aunts and uncles. Really. They may share some of what you get, but really, you get it from your parents, who got it from their parents, and so on. If you don’t understand that much about genetics, I really don’t want to buy medicines that you make.
