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.

 

Nuts may help you live longer and healthier

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.

If you haven’t watched these videos, please do so. They may change your life and health for ever and that of your family. These topics are covered in my book in detail. The book is sold in all formats at Barnes & Noble and Amazon websites.

Health information is confusing at best. We read about studies that say something is bad for you then another study says it’s good for you. People get frustrated and eat what they want. This is what large groups like the Meat packers, Diary Industry, etc want. Always remember corporations are making big money from meat, dairy products and sugar. They are protecting their industries by finding studies that support their products as good for you.

Doctors are not dietitians. At most they take one elementary class and it’s on baby diets. Their normal classes are from books paid for by big drug companies. Instead of learning the cause of illnesses, they learn how to identify a symptom and then prescribe a drug. No one is looking for cures! If we were to cure heart disease, cancer or even any of the dementia’s the drug companies would lose billions. Health is BIG BUSINESS in America!

Some rules to govern your life and your health:

  1. Understand big business’ influence on you
  2. Understand that TV commercials are powerful and influence you to buy. Watch a drug commercial. As they are talking about serious side effects including death, they are showing a loving couple or parents with kids living a happy life. This subliminal message causes you to want this solution.
  3. Understand that doctors will not have cures but drugs for you to take. They are NOT evil, they just don’t understand. You don’t have to take drugs for all problems.
  4. Do your own research on side effects of drugs, way it against health and life.
  5. Do research on what a proper diet, positive thinking and lowered stress can do for your health. This BLOG is dedicated to bringing this information to you.
  6. Understand that you are NOT controlled by your DNA. You can change bad effects via epigenetics through changes to diet, thinking and stress.
  7. Health is a matter of your choice! Choose wisely. You can be healthy or sick, it’s up to you.

You should NOT do what I write about because I write about it. I am only bringing messages from scientific groups and informed doctors to you. I bring it to you in my book and this BLOG. An eBook version of my book is about $3 and this BLOG is free. Read it, think about it and do your own research. Then make an informed decision. What is at stake is your family’s health and happiness as well as your own.

Food For Thought – An Epigenetic Guide to Wellness

We have talked about the work of Bruce Lipton in this BLOG.  Bruce is studying and showing a much different view of how our bodies work, the spiritual side. He explains how we can change our genes and therefore our health by our diets, beliefs and thinking. We are made of matter but matter is made of energy so we are creatures made of energy vibrations. Are we creating our own extinction? Watch this video! My book, Food for Thought, covers a lot of his work. My book is available from Amazon.com and Barnesandnoble.com in all formats.

Epigenetics Part 2 – Nature vs. Nurture

This is part 2 on what is epigenetics. All our stem cells have exactly the same DNA but as epigenetics “expresses” certain genes they become unique and very different cell types. Like muscle, heart, skin, etc. Each stem cell becomes one type of cell in our bodies. Once it is transformed it and all its descendants remain that cell type.

Nature is our DNA and what is hard programmed into us but Nurture is that part of epigenetics that is changeable by what we eat, how we think, what we believe and how much stress we have in our lives. I use the example of a computer a lot in my BLOGs but a piano is a great example as well. The keys are our DNA (hard-wired for a sound) but the pianist “plays” the piano by hitting (expressing a key and a sound) and the order that keys are played. This gives us the infinite different types of piano music we have.
