In 2003, The Human Genome Research Project finished mapping the entire human genome.
Your DNA contains thousands of genes or base pairs that are all coiled up inside the nucleus of
each and every cell in your body.
And whilst 99.9% of human DNA is the same, that small variation, is what makes each of us unique.
It determines your hair colour, your eye colour and if you will be short or tall. It can even determine your risk of having a chronic disease- your genetic predisposition.
Whilst you can't change your genes, you can change how they function.
HOW CAN YOU DO THAT? IT'S REALLY EASY.
Often diseases run in families because of your genes. Even though your gene variations increase your risk, the biggest influence on your health and your genes is your environment and lifestyle choices.
These include: -
· Poor diet
· Sedentary Lifestyle
DNA testing identifies your genetic risk and can be used in combination with nutrigenomics to reduce or reverse the long term effects of chronic diseases.
Nutrigenomics is the science of how your genes are influenced by the food you eat every day. Fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds, grains, meat and seafood, all contain powerful bioactive plant compounds (as well as vitamins and minerals) that can have a direct influence on the biochemical pathways and functions of your body. They can have both a positive and a negative effect on your health.
