Radioactivity in the body.

Recessive genes are only recognized when, by chance, two of the recessive-type genes come together. A considerable number of diseases are associated with recessive genes and will therefore manifest themselves only when both parents have the same recessive genes. Spontaneous mutation accounts for the fact that an appreciable fraction of the world’s population suffers from 1 of the 500 or more defects or diseases attributable to heritable effects.
