What is the environmental factor?
The environmental factor consists of a person’s lifestyle, from their habits, diet, drug consumption, pollution of their place of residence, stress, etc.
These factors have a strong impact on the development of complex diseases, being in most cases even more relevant than the genetic factor.
That is why, in many cases, changes in lifestyle are recommended to prevent the onset of a pathology and its subsequent control. Similarly, in genetics, when it comes to complex diseases, we talk about predisposition due to the many variables involved.
