This is not a paper this is just a question that needs to be answered with 100 words.


Most people often do not think of biology, genetics, and healthcare in relation to cross-cultural psychology. But some examples which relate to biology, genetics, and cultures are:

-In addition to socio-cultural factors, alcoholism rates are high in Native -American Indians because their blood has a high absorption rate.
