Are we destined to fall victim to our genetic weaknesses?

Will we get heart disease or cancer because we have inherited bad genes from our parents ? In other words, are we controlled by our genes or does our environment control which genes are turned on or off. The new understanding in molecular biology is that we are the masters of our genetic potential and therefore our health. How we think and what we eat, drink, and breathe determines our health future. Here is an example that I have written about before, on how just changing our diet can turn on or off good and bad genes. Researchers from Finland took two groups of people with metabolic syndrome and gave each group a different diet. The diet differed in what type of carbohydrates they consumed for the 12 week study. The rest of their diet was identical. They contained the same calories and the same amount of fat, protein, carbohydrate, and fiber. The first group had wheat, oats, and potatoes as the source of their carbs. The second group ate rye as their source of carbohydrate. Rye has some very special properties. It is slowly absorbed by the body and has phytonutrients that help you lose weight and improve metabolism. After the 12 weeks, the researchers took a fat sample and analyzed it to find out which genes were turned on or off. So what happened? In the wheat, oat, and potato group, 62 genes were activated that increased inflammation, oxidative stress, and the stress response, worsened blood sugar balance, and generally amplified all of the forces in the body that lead to obesity, heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and Alzheimer's disease! No good genes were turned on. In the rye group, 71 genes were turned on that prevent diabetes, lower cholesterol, reduce inflammation, and improve blood sugar control. In both cases, the genes that were turned on and off were 100% effective. In other words they were either anti-inflammatory or pro-inflammatory. This also hold true for good fats and bad fats. Vegetable oils are pro-inflammatory and fish oils are anti-inflammatory.

This new science is called Epigentics or in my field Nutrigenomics.

Take about 7 minutes to get a glimpse into this new understanding of biology, it will blow you away.

Dr. Bruce Lipton explains how our new understanding of biology will take you from a world of crisis and ill health to another level of masterful control.

The New Biology- From Victim to Master of Your Health

Now that you have a paradigm shift on your belief of genetic control, start taking action today to reduce your chances of cancer & heart disease.


Dr Linus Pauling's Unified Theory of Cardiovascular Disease ...
Over ten years ago, the two-time Nobel prize Laureate, Dr Linus Pauling and his associate Dr Matthias Rath, advocated and published a definitive thesis on the root cause, treatment, and actual cure for all forms of cardiovascular disease (CVD), including congestive heart failure, heart disease, and stroke. Today, cardiovascular related health problems together comprise fully one half of all causes of death in the US. Pauling and Rath's brilliant analysis of CVD is absolutely compelling and amply supported by numerous epidemiological and clinical studies. His unified theory of CVD constitutes one of the greatest breakthroughs in modern science, and yet has been almost completely ignored by the mainstream medical establishment, and received almost no press.

Dr. Rath’s Scientific Discovery in Heart Disease - Coronary Heart Disease Is an Early Form of Scurvy...
Dr. Rath’s research reveals that coronary heart disease occurs exactly for the same reason that clinical (early) scurvy does – a deficiency of vitamin C in the cells composing the artery wall. Humans, unlike animals, develop heart disease because their bodies cannot produce vitamin C. The average diet provides enough vitamin C to prevent scurvy, but not enough to guarantee stable artery walls. As a consequence of vitamin C deficiency, millions of tiny cracks and lesions develop in the artery walls. Subsequently, cholesterol, lipoproteins and other blood risk factors enter the damaged artery walls to repair these lesions.
In the case of chronic vitamin deficiency, this repair process becomes continuous. Over the course of many years, atherosclerotic deposits develop. Deposits in the arteries of the heart eventually lead to heart attack; deposits in the arteries of the brain lead to stroke.

Dr. Rath’s Scientific Discovery in Cancer...
Dr. Rath identified a common pathomechanism of all cancers, which is the degradation of the surrounding connective tissue, as a precondition for cancer metastasis. He suggested that the amino acid lysine and vitamin C could effectively control this process.
Cancer develops when cells in one part of the body begin to grow out of control. Normal body cells grow, divide, and die in a systematic way. During the early years of a person’s life, normal cells divide more rapidly until the person becomes an adult. After that, cells in most parts of the body divide only to replace worn out or dying cells and to repair injuries. In the case of cancer cells, the genetic program that regulates their growth cycle is interrupted, causing the cells to become immortal and constantly divide. Cancer cell growth never stops, and it results in the formation of a tumor mass.To stop cancer metastasis, the activity of MMPs must be inhibited. Dr. Rath and his team of researchers at the Dr. Rath Research Institute have identified a specific combination of nutrients that can inhibit the activity of MMPs and stop the spread of cancer cells.
