Ozzy Osbourne Gets His Genetic Code Sequenced

I was curious. Given the swimming pools of booze I’ve guzzled over the years—not to mention all of the cocaine, morphine, sleeping pills, cough syrup, LSD, Rohypnol…you name it—there’s really no plausible medical reason why I should still be alive. Maybe my DNA could say why.

Looks like pretty flawless logic to me.
Thank you Ozzy, for your dedicated contributions to science and mankind.

You can read the full article on Scientific American where they interview one of the co-founders of the company in charge of genetic analysis. They talk dopamine, metabolism and the presence of “rare genetic variants.” The interviewee actually does a pretty solid job of answering questions clearly intended for the CSI generation. FYI kids: Analyzing genetics is friggin’ hard– you can’t just dump someone’s DNA into a machine and have it spit out all predispositions for illnesses, character traits and the “secrets” to their existence. YAKAWOW!
