Reply to ""...bring with it""

But the sentence structure still looks weird to me because "diversity of genetic disease" follows "it". Can I change the sentence to "Genetic diversity brings diversity of genetic disease  with it"

"It" refers to the subject "genetic diversity." You can place the prepositional phrase "with it" either before or after the object. Its position before the object is preferred mainly when the object is long. Imagine this sentence:

- Genetic diversity brings with it diversity of genetic disease as well as a large variety of other health-related factors.

It would be very awkward to place "with it" at the end.
