Your genes

You have your genes to thank - or blame - for your appearance. Genes are your body's instruction manual. They affect the way you look, your health, and the way your body works.

Your brain

You couldn't work without your brain. It is responsible for everything you do - waking in the morning, remembering who you are and where you live and feelings of love, happiness or sadness.
