Some characteristics like hair and eye colour, whether or not you can curl your tongue, your height, skin colour are all things that you inherit from your parents, also why you look like them. Other characteristics are not inherited, but could be a result of your surroundings. For example, fetal alcohol syndrom is not inherited from your mom, it is a result of your mom drinking when pregnant. Many birth defects in babies back in the 50's and 60's was a result of mothers taking thalidamide, a drug used to prevent morning sickness, a non-heritablecharacteristic!
