We've all heard the phrase "nobody's perfect" -- and now a new gene study proves it's true.

the study reveals average, healthy adults have roughly four hundred d-n-a mutations that are linked to disease.

researchers at cardiff and cambridge universities say many of the damaged genes are recessive -- meaning they won't cause any harm to the carrier.

however, one in ten people carry a dominant gene mutation, or two copies of the recessive gene, and could develop a disease.

they are still trying to determine what to do with this abundance of genetic information.
