So What is Epigenetics anyway – Part 1?

Leave a comment


This is a summary from my book, “Food for Thought, An Epigenetic Guide to Wellness”. Epigenetics is a real programming system in our bodies! In fact it is in each cell as part of its machinery. We used to think that DNA was everything. It would explain life. But it is just the raw codes in the machinery. It is like the Intel instruction set in a PC or the hard-wired keys of a piano. They can be changed but usually are not. Epigenetics is the same as software on a computer or the pianist playing the piano. Scientist first thought about a puzzle, Why were chimps 98% the same DNA as us but so different. It turns out that although the DNA is very similar, the epigenetics is different. A chimps epigenetics plays the DNA to make a chimp and ours plays our DNA to make a human. This is similar to a pianist can play Jazz, Rock or Classical on the same the piano. The programming of the piano creates vastly different outcomes.

Tomorrow we will do Part 2 of this series and look at what epigenetics does in our bodies and what changes it.

The New England Journal of Medicine published a paper on the benefits of consuming nuts in our daily diet. They said, “They found that people who ate an average of one serving of nuts per day had a 20 percent lower risk of death from several common health problems compared to those who never ate nuts. The more nuts they ate, the greater the effect.” Nuts are so good for us they are nutrient dense. Dr. David Katz, founding director of Yale University‘s Prevention Research Center, who is not affiliated with the study, said that though the study cannot prove conclusively that eating more nuts will keep you alive longer, the findings are healthy food for thought.

Diet is so important for our health that everyone should do what they cab to eat well. We only have one life. How we live it is up to us!

What is in a Chicken Nugget?

Dr Greger does an autopsy of chicken nuggets in the video below. Chicken is an item missing or almost missing from chicken nuggets! It’s mostly skeleton, skin and fat (no meat). We seem to have laws that allow names to represent an item in a misleading way. Do you really want to feed your kids skin, skeleton and fat? No wonder America’s waist line is in a constant growth!

If you haven’t read “The China Study” by T. Colin Campbell, please do so. This book was an eye opener for me. Dr. Campbell showed that he could turn cancer ON when animal protein consumption was more than 10% of your diet and turn it back off when it was less. A vegan diet can prevent cancers as well as other chronic illnesses. If you already have an illness, it can improve the situation and might even cure the disease. Dr Campbell has a great website that has many doctors talking about the benefits of a plant-based diet. Read what they have to say. It is your choice! The China Study and Dr. Campbell’s research is one of the topics covered in my book.

This is a video on my Video Tab. Dr Joel Fuhrman Talks about Vegan Diets to Cure Diseases. It is a powerful message about diet and disease. Epigenetics allow each cell in our body to link with the external environment. The influences are diet, hormones, epigenetics from other cells, how we think, and stress. These influences can change how a cell does it’s work. Some of these changes will make us healthy an strong while others will make us sick.

I talk about this video a lot but it is the most important video you can watch. It may save your life or that of a family member. Watch it! Dr Greger talks about the largest health study done on a vegan diet by CDC. This video shows that statistics proves a vegan diet can help you stay health and avoid the top killer diseases of Americans. If you have a chronic illness, it can help cure it and restore your health.

Just like your car, if you keep putting the wrong fuel into your car, it will fail you. Our bodies are no different. Make sure your fuel is the best for your health. Don’t be sold by TV commercials. Don’t believe drugs will save you, THEY WON’T.

The Video tab on my BLOG has videos of all the most important topics I have BLOGged on. The first three are very important for your health:

  1. Dr Greger reporting on American Dietetic Association. This is a study of 13,000 people showing the very real benefits of a plant-based diet.
  2. Dr Gregor talking about the largest diet study ever done in US by CDC showing a vegan diet is more healthy!
  3. Professor T. Colin Campbell PhD. author of The China Study has another interesting video. The Celebrated Cornell University professor T. Colin Campbell PhD, presents the overwhelming evidence showing that animal protein is one of the most potent carcinogens people are exposed to. Dr. Campbell wrote the China Study.
