Scientists at Knome Inc. in Cambridge, Mass, a genome company reached out to Ozzy Osbourne to find out what is in his genetics that allow him to live through decades of heavy drug and alcohol abuse.
They found a new mutation that could be the solution....and why ozzy can consume alcohol in great quantities and that he has several genetic variations that predisposed him to drug and alcohol addictions
“Ozzy is indeed a genetic mutant,” said Bill Sulllivan, “Pleased to Meet Me: Genes, Germs and the Curious Forces that Make Us Who We Are” (National Geographic), out this month and in this book he researches the ways that our genes affect us.
. “After all these years of thinking we were free agents, we’ve come to realize that most, if not all, of our behavior is not of our own volition,” writes Sullivan, a professor at the Indiana University School of Medicine.
