Did you know your genetic expression is modifiable? Nature (genes) + nurture (environment) = you. The exciting news is that those who have a ‘family history of XYZ disease’ can actually alter their genes and reverse free radical damage caused through lifestyle and nutrition. Yay!
Sound nutrition with a sufficient intake of antioxidants in the form of vitamin A, C and E can actually ‘switch off’ these disease-causing genes. Limiting environmental contaminants such as pesticides and other chemicals, reducing consumption of carcinogenic foods, and eating a balanced, healthy diet are all ways to modify your genetic expression and prevent cancer and disease.
