You might recall that your epigenome is the modifiable “scaffolding” that regulates your genes. (A tweak in the epigenome can either activate or silence your genes.)

  1. The show notes at the link above were really helpful. I'm have the MTHFR so was interested in the dialog on 23 and me but I didn't learn absorb any action items.

  2. "… followed for 1 year"
    All meat eating research are short term research (typically 3months to 3 year)
    Whilst plant based research/studies are long term (over 5-20 years)

    It's this simple >>> Go and find the best ORGANIC, GRASS FED, FREE RANGE, ANTIBIOTIC FREE, HORMONE FREE MEAT you can find. Go and take it to a laboratory and test it for the heavy metal, chemical toxin, bacterial/viral, contaminants.
    You will be shocked on how contaminated it is…. End of story.

  3. This deserved more subscribers. Love how educated these videos are supported by valid researches, doctors & scientist. All these give me more reasons to continue my lchf as a lifestyle rather than a diet. From Malaysia.

  4. very good discussion.   helped clarify some often heard terms that up till now I had only a very crude  understanding of  – HDAC, chromatin, acetyl group vs methyl group, etc.

  5. Amazing interview! Such a milestone for preventive medicine… the best medicine in the world some say. I love how it is explained in a simple way with metaphors and studies… Ohh the social injustice with the worker bees not getting a bit of royal jelly!… how interesting that study on how mere diet defines the fate of the bee :)
