    I thought it was because of my parents, not so much genetics, because they had little extra money to spend on medical needs. It had to be serious to warrant going to see a doctor. The every day scraps, bruises, sniffles, cold/flu and aches n pains, we learned not to even bring it up. Its not that they didn't care. Because of experiencing or exposure to mishaps and to many of natures microbes we developed a good immune system. That is my theory.

    Yup. This is what mercury looks like through an ultraviolet camera when exposed to the air:
