Autism with Richard Kunin, MD

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
  There is an epidemic of autism and the cause for it is multifactorial. Dr. Kunin explains the myriad of factors in addition to DNA abnormalities that cause autism. Vaccines are another important trigger in three important ways.          

Cherries Lower the Risk for Gout

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
  A study published in Arthritis and Rheumatism in September of 2012 showed that people with gout who ate cherries for two days had a 35% lower risk for developing acute gout compared to those not eating cherries. When consumed while on allopurinol the risk was lowered 75%. Cherry products lower uric acid, which is the end waste product of purine metabolism....

Colon Cancer Screening, Which is Right for You?

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
  There are many different tests used in colon cancer screening and it is confusing to know which one is right for you. Not everyone should do the same test. There are controversies about if it is even necessary in asymptomatic people.        

Dangerous Viral Gene Found in Most GMO Crops

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
  The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) belatedly discovered that of the 86 GMO foods developed, 54 contain a virus called Gene 6 that has not been cleared for safety! Gene 6 may also disturb the normal health of crops, including their natural pest resistance as well as human health. GMO crops should be banned and recalled. In the US we don't...

Diet, Exercise, and Lifestyle Affect Prostate Cancer

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
Dr. Saputo discusses how diet, exercise and lifestyle affect cancer. DNA is not immutable, it can be changed so that oncogenes can be turned off or on.        

Does Spiritual Health Lead to Better Health?

submitted by: admin on 06/01/2014
  Despite differences in rituals and belief among the world's major religions (Buddhism, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Protestants), spirituality often enhances health regardless of a person's faith according to researchers at the University of Missouri. Actually, anything you believe, whether in self, others, or spirit, has a powerful effect...

Does Your Attitude Affect Your Genes?

submitted by: admin on 02/19/2015
  The July issue of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences posted an article by UCLA and the University of North Carolina showing that different types of happiness have surprisingly different effects on the human genome. Narcissistic happiness, like prolonged stress, causes high levels of inflammation and low antiviral and antibody...

Epigenetics with Bruce Lipton

submitted by: admin on 06/14/2024
Genes in cells are influenced and controlled by the environment in which it lives. This means that DNA is not immutable. Our perception of how we see the world influences our genetic makeup. We are actually the masters of our biology because what we think affects how our genes effect our biology. Even identical twins have different gene readouts that become more...

Everything You Need to Know About Glutamine

submitted by: admin on 09/21/2013
  Glutamine is a conditionally needed amino acid that is far underused, especially in hospitals. Supplementation helps prevent muscle breakdown, protects the bowel lining when we are not eating, boosts immunity, is the major metabolic fuel of the small intestine and is necessary for production of DNA and glutathione.          

Exercise Reduces the Effect of an Obesity Gene

submitted by: admin on 09/21/2013
  Physical exercise can change the DNA in certain genes that stimulate obesity and lessen their effects by about 30%. Epigenetics has a lot to do with how the DNA in our genes manifests itself. This challenges the widely held belief that what is in our DNA is not changeable...thank goodness that this is not true. We have found the same epigenetic...

Father's Obesity Affects Sperm DNA for Two Generations

submitted by: admin on 09/21/2013
  An article published in FASEB Journal showed that obesity in fathers changed the DNA in their sperm so as to put future generations at risk for obesity and type 2 diabetes even if they consumed a healthy diet. This change developed whether or not the obese father had signs of type 2 diabetes or the metabolic syndrome. We've long known that...

Fish Oil Derivative Cures Cancer

submitted by: admin on 06/24/2016
  An article published in the journal, Blood, reported that a compound from fish oil targeted and killed stem cells of chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) in mice. They were completely cured of CML and with no relapse with a daily injection for just one week! The compound stimulated the p53 tumor suppressor gene that regulates the response to DNA damage...

GMO Crops Must be Immediately Outlawed

submitted by: admin on 09/22/2013
  GMO foods are dangerous and should be outlawed immediately. Longterm studies in mice show a high incidence of breast cancer as well as serious kidney and liver disorders. The problem with the research done by Monsanto and DuPont  that has been done is that they are all relatively short term and it takes many years for disease to develop when caused...

Gut Microflora and Colon Cancer

submitted by: admin on 04/24/2014
Studies from the Wistar Institute published in April of 2014 suggest that the microbes that make up the microflora of the intestinal tract can suppress DNA repair in the cells lining the intestinal tract and lead to colorectal cancer. It is only recently that most gastroenterologists have begun to appreciate the importance of the microflora in the gut. We...

H. Pylori DNA Reduces Inflammation from Colitis

submitted by: admin on 09/22/2013
  DNA from H. pylori minimizes the effects of colitis in mice with regard to weight loss, GI bleeding, and stool consistency. More than 50% of the world has significant amounts of this microbe in their intestinal tracts. The bug in some settings could be good for us! Radical treatment with triple therapy that includes several antibiotics, acid blockers,...

Infection Can Lead to Cancer

submitted by: admin on 10/09/2013
  A new MIT study published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences in June of 2012 showed that chronic viral and bacterial infections account for 16% of cancers of the liver, colon, and stomach. When the body's immune system detects pathogens it activates macrophages and neutrophils to engulf and kill them with hypochlorous acid. When...

Is Getting Cancer Just Bad Luck?

submitted by: admin on 01/22/2015
Reseachers from John Hopkins Cancer created a statistical model measuring the proportion of cancer incidence caused by random mutations during stem cell division; this was published in the journal, Science in January of 2015. They concluded that 2/3 of cancers can be explained by "bad luck." What they really determined was an association rather than...

Is it DNA or Lifestyle that Regulates our Genes?

submitted by: admin on 10/09/2013
  The December issue of the journal Aging Cell reported that molecular changes causing cancer are related to our genes and are driven mainly by aging, but are also dictated by what we eat, how much we weigh, and levels of vitamin D, selenium, and folic acid. This study out of Newcastle University in the UK showed that aging had the biggest effect on...

Lifestyle Modifies Your DNA

submitted by: admin on 02/19/2015
The field of epigenetics is exploding. We now know that DNA changes in response to environmental exposures and causes major changes in gene expressivity. It is well known that prostate cancer genes (oncogenes) are turned on and off by diet, exercise, relation, sleep, meditation and more. The work of Dean Ornish, MD on prostate cancer proved this. We now have...

Link Between Mother's Diet and Childhood Obesity

submitted by: admin on 10/09/2013
Medical researchers have discovered that a mother's nutrition during pregnancy can affect a child's risk for obesity many years later. They show that diet can change how DNA expresses itself with regard to appetite regulation. These epigenetic changes suggest that measures to prevent childhood obesity should also target on improving the mother's nutrition...
