The Food We Eat Changes Our Genes

genes

New evidence has emerged this week that supports the idea that nutrition can cause—and reverse—most diseases. Scientists have discovered that almost all of our genes are affected by the food we eat, and change according to the nutrients that are available to them.

The biochemical reactions in our genes are determined by the sugars, amino acids, fatty acids and vitamins that are part of our diet, an international team of researchers from the University of Cambridge and the Francis Crick Institute have discovered.

The current medical model is built on the assumption that genes play a significant part in disease, but the researchers have discovered a stage before that—how we feed our genes. Although scientists have known about a connection between diet and genetic behavior, the new research has discovered that food plays a more significant part than suspected, and that up to 90 per cent of our genes are affected.

It was also thought that genes control the way nutrients are broken down, but the new research has discovered the opposite is also true: the way the nutrients break down affects the behavior of genes.

“Nearly all of a cell’s genes are influenced by changes to the nutrients they have access to. In fact, in many cases the effects were so strong that changing a cells’ metabolic profile could make some of its genes behave in a completely different manner,” said lead researcher Markus Ralser.

What Doctors Don’t Tell You

Your GENES aren’t your Destiny…your lifestyle is!

Still want to blame Genes for Cancer? Then explain this…

Dr. Richard Goldberg, the physician-in-chief and a professor of medicine at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute (very credible)….found that, “Colon cancer is QUITE RARE in Japan, although it’s becoming more common as their diet becomes Westernized.”

His studies have shown if a MAN or WOMAN lives in Japan, their incidence of Colon Cancer is very rare and as soon as they move to the United States, their risk of Colon Cancer goes up extremely.

How?
Did their GENES change?

No their lifestyle did. Once you begin living the typical Standard American Diet and living the Standard American lifestyle, you INCREASE your risk of Cancer, regardless of Genes….if you have the Genes for colon cancer, you turn them on sooner living the typical American lifestyle!

Your DNA (your genes) isn’t your Destiny, your lifestyle is!

Dr. Charles Majors DC of the book “The Cancer Killers”

 

This blog article is important to understand. Genetic testing seems to be the rise as the new thing to do when evaluating certain health conditions that may seem to have a genetic link. You control your destiny, not your genes. Are you taking the right supplements and eating the right foods to express your full gene potential?

    SO true! All comes back to us taking responsibility for our health. How we eat, drink, think, live and love does in turn affect how our genes are expressed. Love the recent burst of Epigenetics coming to light! Great article, Thanks Dr. J!
