Cancer and diabetes are two common hereditary diseases.
a. True
b. False

Answered by wiki @



False
Hereditary diseases are those that are caused solely by a person's genome, or genetic make up. Examples of such diseases include Huntington's disease and cycstic fibrosis. Although cancer and diabetes are both greatly influenced by a person's genetics, they are also affected by a person's lifestyle and many external factors. For this reason, they are not classified as hereditary diseases.
