At one point we thought our genes were static, meaning that if your mom had arthritis…you were very likely to get it to. While this is still true, we now know that what we eat, how we think and move can actually influence our genes.
The good news…we can talk to our genes and influence which of these disease factors will be expressed.
One of the biggest ways that our lifestyle can influence this is through telomers. Telomers are basically protective caps on the end of our chromosomes and the longer our telomers the longer we live. Studies are now showing that 12 weeks on a healthy whole food lifestyle program (including reducing stress, improving sleep and exercise) can positively influence the length of the telomers.
New research is also showing that the omega 3 fats found in fish can also keep your telomers from shortening. Yet another reason to eat wild sources of fish and take your omega 3 supplement (that has been tested for heavy metals of course).

Thanks for a great summary about health and epigenetics. Hopefully, posts like this will create enough interest to help many.
Most of the common fever are responsible for our over work and which leads to accumulation of cells at one place due to which blood circulation does not work as per the required anatomy . If an appropriate action(acupuncture therapy) is taken at that time fever will moved out from ones body.
Incorporating this sort of biotechnology will really serve the whole human being by making a disease free society.
And Quebec separation is a non-problem? Tho not solevd, PMSHs moves have sent the Bloc to new all time lows, ensuring that a referendum is not on the agenda for a long while.Man, are you naive.And of course Dion Liberals do not believe there was a fiscal imbalance. That’s because there wasn’t.But have found absolute URGENCY in Kyoto. Not so when they signed it, like 10 years ago, and then ratified it, but being in Opposition, they have found URGENCY! Advise: drink lots of cranberry juice….’round and ’round the Mulberry bush.If you think the Liberals deserve to govern, send them some money (they can’t steal ‘a couple of million’ anymore) so as the poor knobs can afford some professional advertising, and maybe afew suntanning sessions for Dion.Oooh, the mean girl’s resorting to her best Heather impression. Me…ow!Ahhhh, the Liberal hidden agenda.Absorb the Dippers and Greenies with a ‘stop Harper’ plea, so as PR can never rear it’s ugly head, because all those that would be represented by PR are voting (as it should be) Liberal, and their parties fall off the electoral map.Go read up on “prorportional represention.” Just cut ‘n paste that into Google. And pay attention while you read; it’ll be on the test.
Auch wenn ich kein besonderer Fan von Handyfotos bin, muss ich trotzdem zugeben: deine “SchnappschÃ¼sse” sind wirklich schÃ¶n geworden. Vor allem die Bilder mit den Tropfen an der Scheibe finde ich sehr interessant und gut gelungen. Mein absoluter Liebling ist aber das Vorletzte!liebe GrÃ¼ÃŸe,Jana
Gewehr98,"It's as if they gave it some extra "oomph" during assembly since they knew the barrels were no longer going to be pinned…"While chiming in after Ed is pointless, since he knows more about this than you and I combined, I'll note that, all things being equal, the 2-piece barrel is much better than the 1-piece unpinned barrel in nearly every respect except aesthetics…
