There are many characteristics that can be spread from parents to offspring, both good and harmful. Examples of some of these traits are; hair color, eye color, cleft chin, double joints, alcoholism, heart disease, brain disease, fingernail texture, earlobes, length of index finger, widow's peak, tongue flexibility and baldness.
