The parents of a child born with a genetic disorder ask the nurse why the child's heart was affected instead of some other organ. How should the nurse respond?


▸ "Not all the DNA code is active in all the cells of the body. The DNA changes were expressed in the cells of your child's heart, but not in other body cells."

▸ "We don't know why that happens."

▸ "The heart is an essential organ, so it is often affected most dramatically."

▸ "Heart cells contain more DNA than other body cells."
