Live Strong says diet does cause genes to get turned ON or OFF thus affecting our genetic programming. Although the actual DNA doesn’t change, what it does will change! A computer program is very similar. The program code doesn’t change but the data being read causes the program to branch to different routines and do different things. The environment, including diet, is data for our genetic programming. It is read at the cellular level as nutrients and can cause genes to be turned ON or OFF. Thus switching of genes affects what our genetic programming does. The graphic to the right shows a computer program but is very similar to our genetic programs. Understand the inputs (environment) and processes (genes) and you will better understand the outcomes (health and well being).
