Ever have trouble connecting your entire family? Too many kids to handle? Too many people to show your love to at all times? A parent has many struggles on a day-to-day basis. They never get time off and they always need to be on their A game. After all they have a family to run, and kids to keep track of. Being a parent is a full time job, on top of whatever other job they may have.
Family members share genes, behaviors, lifestyles, and environments that together may influence their health and their risk of chronic disease. Most people have a family health history of some chronic diseases (e.g., cancer, coronary heart disease, and diabetes) and health conditions (e.g., high blood pressure and hypercholesterolemia). People who have a close family member with a chronic disease may have a higher risk of developing that disease than those without such a family member.
