Ozzy Osbourne, preparing to grasp the meaning of his genome.
THE mystery of why Ozzy Osbourne is still alive after decades of drug and alcohol abuse may finally be solved.
The 61-year-old former Black Sabbath lead singer — who this week begins his health advice column in The Sunday Times Magazine — is to become one of only a few people in the world to have his full genome sequenced.
In addition to giving Osbourne information that could help prevent diseases, it is hoped the results will provide insights into the way drugs are absorbed into the body.
I suppose stranger things have happened. Now they need to do Keith Richards. Anything rare variants those two share … well, I’m not sure WHAT you do with it.
