Estrogen

Believe it or not, everyone’s body contains a certain amount of this hormone. It helps the body develop secondary female characteristics, such as breasts, as well as male reproductive functions for the maturation of sperm.

The Same DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid)

DNA from all organisms is made up of the same chemical and physical components. DNA molecules are shaped like a twisted ladder (“double helix”). Each rung/step is made up of a Base pair of nucleotide (molecules) bases, either A (Adenine) and T (Thymine) or C (Cytosine) and G (Guanine)). These Base pairs are held together by a band of Sugar phosphate on either end. The DNA sequence is a particular side-by-side arrangement of bases (half of the ladder) along the DNA strand (e.g., ATTCCGGA). The genome is an organism’s complete set of DNA.

Race and Genetics

Following the completion of the Human Genome Project, the theory of race as a biologically validated concept was strongly disavowed by the scientific community.
