  • 2. Every human has 99.9%of the SAME DNA. Only0.1% of our DNA differs!
  • 3. Differences in DNA• There is a 99.9% similarity within the DNA of human beings when compared to one another.• The differences in DNA can be as little as a trait given to you. Although there is only a 0.1% difference, there is nothing in our DNA that separates us by race. Angier, Natalie
