Because the genes that make you a human, that allow you to do everything a human can do, including live, are stored in your DNA. And the DNA is converted to RNA to make the gene products of those genes, which are called proteins (usually). DNA and RNA are both nucleic acids (Deoxyribo nucleic Acid....and Ribo nuclei acid).
