Newsflash: Diet and Exercise More Important Than Genes
This study with Dr. Dean Ornish helps show why the decisions you make about your lifestyle are far more important than your genes. Specifically, the study found that eating more whole foods, especially fruits and vegetables, and exercising helped turn on genes that protect against chronic diseases, and turned off bad genes that promote disease.
This is clearly great news (although this information has been around for quite some time) for those willing to take their health into their own hands and make good decisions by eating more whole foods and exercising regularly.
Now you know you don’t have to spend $10,000 on the newest drug or undergo some experiment to remove your cancer genes – you just have to spend 10 minutes walking and eat more whole fruits, vegetables and grains to prevent disease.
