Beyond DNA Health | What is health according to genes?
Our genes are the blueprint for our bodies and control a wide variety of traits such as eye color, body size and talents. Unfortunately, our genes are not without flaws and each of us carries certain gene defects or gene variations that can negatively affect our health. Certain gene variations increase our risk of diabetes, thrombosis or cancer, determine how effectively we can remove toxins from our body, control whether we cannot tolerate certain foods such as gluten or lactose and how susceptible our teeth are to periodontal disease. Genes determine which drugs work for us and which can lead to serious side effects, and whether our immune system recognizes and rejects titanium dental implants.
Beyond DNA Health | How does it work?
Experts estimate that each person carries about 2,000 genetic defects or gene variations, which in total affect their health and body and in some cases cause disease. A variety of influences can cause changes in our genes (also called mutations). In rare cases can have positive effects, but most often disrupt the function of the gene and negatively affect our health. With Beyond DNA Health | Health according to your genes you can prevent diseases. The DNA analysis helps you find your optimal diet for your genes.
The most well-known cause of gene defects in the media is radioactivity, whereby the radioactive rays penetrate into the cells and damage our genetic code and thus, by chance, our genes. Another cause of mutations and genetic defects are certain substances, such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, which are found, for example, on grilled food. They also enter cells and damage our genes, which can lead to colon and some other cancers. UV radiation from the sun also damages our genes, leading to diseases such as skin cancer.
Reasons for analysis
These influences can alter individual genes and disrupt their function throughout our lives, but we inherit the majority of our gene variations from our parents. Each embryo receives half of the father’s genes and half of the mother’s genes when the egg is fertilized, which together create a new human being with some of the characteristics of each parent. With these genes, unfortunately, genetic defects are also passed on, and so it happens that, for example, a polymorphism that causes heart attacks is passed from father to son and on to grandson, leading to the disease in each generation. However, whether the genetic defect is passed on is determined by chance and so some of the grandchildren may carry the genetic defect and others may not.
