Environmental factors, once proven to be teratogenic, often can be decreased or removed (e.g., methyl mercury poisoning). A vaccine may be developed against infectious diseases. The use of drugs during pregnancy should be limited Author: Kerstin Strömland.

In his book The Dependent Gene, David Moore reports that Question 1 options: genes are collaborative. genes act independently. genes have a one-to-one correspondence with proteins. the expression of genes is not affected by environmental conditions.
