The DNA in just one of your cells gets damaged tens of thousands of times per day. Because DNA provides the blueprint for the proteins your cells need to function, this damage can cause serious issues—including cancer. Fortunately, your cells have ways of fixing most of these problems, most of the time. Monica Menesini details the processes of DNA damage and repair.

what about the DNA that provides motor function? I have a rare undetermined genetic disorder that decreases my motor functions in my left side like Parkinson's however I have been told that I don't have Parkinson's my doctor suspected something called perry syndrome and also dystonia, i also have minor scoliosis I just wish there was a way to replace or fix the missing genes so I can have my life back
