How do genetic conditions develop?

In: 1

As you are probably aware, new life is produced through the repeated duplication of cells through cell division. This process of cell division is very close to perfect, but there are errors sometimes. When these errors happen in critical stages of a fetus’ development, a genetic abnormality results. Genetic conditions can also of course be passed down from a parent but at some point in the ancestry line, that condition started as a random error in cell division.
