While some are still baffled how Ozzy Osbourne has been able to survive all of the decades of drug and alcohol abuse during his younger years, it turns out that the reason can be broken down to his DNA.

According to the book "Pleased to Meet Me: Genes, Germs and the Curious Forces that Make Us Who We Are", author Bill Sullivan examines the interesting ways how humans can be shaped by the information stored in our DNA.In the book, Sullivan says of the Prince of Darkness's DNA, “Ozzy is indeed a genetic mutant,”

Sullivand's findings discovered an unknown genetic mutation in Osbourne's DNA which could have something to do with his ability to consume large amounts of alcohol.

This information is backed up by a study conducted by Knome Inc. in Cambridge, MA, which found that Ozzy's regulatory region of the ADH4 gene, which is most commonly associated with alcoholism, featured a change that scientists had never seen before. His DNA also showed that he had an increased predisposition towards becoming dependant on drugs and alcohol.

In an interesting twist, the Osbourne's genes showed that his body slowly metabolizes coffee, which means he is much more likely to be affected by caffeine.
