"DEATH-DEFYING DNA
During his 50-year heavy metal music career, Ozzy Osbourne has become famous for his alcohol and drug binges. To learn what allowed Osbourne to survive cocaine for breakfast and four bottles of cognac a day for decades, scientists analyzed his DNA in 2010. They found a never before seen mutation in a gene that’s involved in breaking down alcohol. They also found variations in genes linked to drug absorptions, addiction, and alcoholism—variations that would make Osbourne six times as likely as an average person to crave alcohol and 1.3 times as likely to have a cocaine addiction."
