The immune system cells

If you have been following my BLOG, you know about how diet and stress can cause diseases. My Last BLOG, Hidden Epigenetic Genome, discussed how food broken down passes into cells for fuel. The mitochondrion then processes these elements and can send enzymes to the nucleus to turn ON/OFF genes. So here is the link that allows some foods to turn ON cancer cells and OFF tumor fighting cells while other foods do the reverse. The perfect storm comes when you are eating the wrong foods and under stress. Stress causes our immune function to break down. So the wrong diet turns on cancer genes and off tumor fighting genes while stress lowers our immune system. We don’t stand a chance under these circumstances. Unlike a hurricane, we can control this storm. Start eating right and lower your stress.
