This food item has more genes than humans

The DNA and the genes associated with it is a complex subject. It’s a topic that could be talked about for years and years as there is a huge amount of information to be covered.

While all these could be saved for another day, there is an interesting fact that needs to be mentioned: Cornflakes have more genes than us humans.

Yes, our favorite breakfast meal outnumbers the number of genes that we have. This might not make sense, but in the larger picture, it’s about the network of the genes that matter rather than the number of them.
