did you know that any person can be up to 99.5% genetically similar to the next?

and humans are 80% genetically similar to a cow (and they have 4 stomachs!) and 96-98% genetically similar to a chimp?
how do you suppose doctors can get away with telling us that allergies and acid reflux and cancer are genetic, and why do we believe them? i think that just because there is a "cancer" gene does not mean that we are destined to get cancer. we can choose to live our lives in such a manner that does not "turn on" that cancer gene. what do you think?
