Junk DNA

I love learning about interesting things and simplifying the information for children. I love the way children think, pure and curious. I came across some info today about DNA, which is fascinating to my nerd side. Scientists used to believe that most DNA information was useless. Recently, they are learning that is not the case. In fact, what they used to term  "Junk DNA" may contain information that could lead to cures of diseases. Science is progressing so rapidly. I feel like there is loads of info in not only our DNA but also a whole lot more in the blood that we are just not aware of yet. The way we are made fills me with wonder! It is like looking at a piece of artwork and studying it.
