With the power of nature and our epigenetics, why can’t our bodies adjust and keep us healthy? Nature takes millions of years to adjust to changes. Normally changes come slowly. When they o come fast they wipe out a major part of a species and those left need to adjust rapidly or go extinct. Both scenarios occur all the time. We are making changes to our bodies and environment at a very rapid degree. Our epigenetics tries to adjust but some of the changes cause conditions that can not be overcome! Take a diet that turns ON cancer genes and turns OFF tumor fighting genes. This makes it near impossible to fight the disease.
We have changed our environment in so many ways:
- Global warming
- Processed foods
- Not enough consumption of plants
- Stressful lives
- Negative thinking and beliefs
- Little or no exercise
This causes our bodies to be overwhelmed to the extent that our bodies become ill. All of these things are choices we all have. Make the right choice and you have a higher probability of health and extended life. Make the wrong ones and that probability drops rapidly. What choices do you make on the above items? How is your healthy? How many medications are you on? Choose wisely.

In this final part of the series, we ask the question, “Where is evolution taking us?” Scientists have always thought that evolution was strictly a random change to our DNA that changed us forever. Are we changing only by random changes to our DNA? I don’t think so. I believe our epigenetic program can also be changed. Our minds are changing us much faster than evolution ever did. Look at all the artificial parts we make for humans, legs, arms, hearts, etc. If our bodies became more machine, how would that change us? That is the question philosophers ask all the time. I think we are much more than the mere flesh that makes up our bodies. Epigenetics is an amazing part of us. What do we know?
We are made of a community of cells (we have more cells in our bodies than there are animals on the Earth). Each cell is a living organism that makes decisions, reproduces, eats, gets rid of waste and communicates with other cells. This community makes you unique. Where we are going is for the science fiction writers to dream up and the scientists to discover. For sure we have evolved from no cellular organisms to cells, to multicellular creatures, all the way up to humans. This is NOT the end. We are still evolving in new ways. In 1,000 years we won’t recognise ourselves at that time. Evolution is not over, we are not the end product of evolution. We are just a step to the future of mankind. After all Early man could not have imagined modern man.
Enjoy your health and your life!

Belief actually switches on genes in our body that makes life changes! Dr. Lipton says knowledge is power. Lack of knowledge results in lack of power. Our genes do NOT control our lives. They don’t cause cancer or disease in our bodies. We cause disease in what we eat and what we believe! Dr. Lipton shows that the nucleus of our cells (which contain the genes) are not the command center of the cell as previously thought. He has removed the nucleus from cells and they continue to function normally. If you remove the brain from any living thing it dies! So the nucleus can not be in control of the cell.
We are a machine built of proteins. The proteins change shape (move) based on signals in our bodies. Movement is a basis of life! Our behavior is movement of a protein by a signal. The brain of the cell is the collection of signals acting on the cell. These signals cause changes or work within the cell. The nucleus is simply the repository of blue prints to build new cell parts. The environment (sound, sunshine, heat, food, thought, hormones, etc) cause the cells to do different things. If we cut off the environment the cell will have nothing to do. This is known as perception.
Genes associated with cancer need to be activated by the environment! The environment caused the cancer NOT THE GENE! Genes do not gives us cancer or disease. Perception (the environment does! Change your perception and you can change your cancer or disease. You are in control!What signal in your life activated a gene that was inactive for 35 years and gave you cancer?
Conventional biology textbooks have said that DNA goes to RNA which builds proteins that do things. In this view DNA is in control! But it is wrong! The Environment sends a protein signal to DNA that allows it to be read into RNA which builds the proteins that do things in our cells. So the environment controls our cells! This is known as epigenetics!
The environment can also change your genes called adaptive mutation. If you enter a stressful environment and don’t have the genes to deal with it, we modify our genes! If you place yourself in stressful environments all the time, your genes are re-written to adapt to stress. This can cause negative things to happen in your body. Move yourself out of the stress and you return to normal genes.
Cells are either in growth (positive) or in protection (negative). They can not be in both at the same time. If you are always in protection mode you are not growing and diseases will occur. Stress cuts off our immune system (it’s not needed if we are being chased by a lion). The strongest growth influence is not nutrients but LOVE!
WHAT IS YOUR PERCEPTION? More on this and Dr. Lipton can be found in my book!
