Use your food to suppress genes that cause disease.
Diseases like some cancers, diabetes, autoimmunity, obesity and many others have a strong genetic factor. But, all research confirms that genes are only part of the equation. The genes need to be activated. And, most wonderfully, your body has the mechanism to suppress disease genes. This is the field of epigenetics.
However, when certain micronutrients are absent the body is unable to keep disease related genes suppressed. Those are the small guys: the molecules in your foods that comprise vitamins, minerals, polyphenols, and antioxidants.
Eating the rainbow is how you ensure you do your part to avoid disease - what gives color also prevents disease and illness. This way of eating also has the possibility of turning off disease genes that are active.
On next week's menu, we are eating the rainbow. We do this within all our nutritional programs, but next week each day will highlight a different color of the rainbow to show you how to integrate the colors when not eating jolie.
Sign up for your experience of Eating the Rainbow and benefit with feeling more energized and good going into the Memorial day weekend.
