WHAT YOUR GENES TELL YOU

With the sequencing of the Human Genome in 2003 we learned that humans have 3 billion DNA bases (A,T, G, C) distributed in 23 pairs of chromosomes, which are 99.9% similar between individuals and the differences between weight, height, eye or hair color corresponds to only 0.1% of the genome.

The most common type of genetic variation among people are the Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (or SNPs pronounced ‘snips’).

 

NOT ALL GENES ARE EQUAL

Studies have shown that certain genes and their SNPs can be regulated or are influenced by nutrients from the diet and that these molecular variations may have beneficial actions to the health of an individual. A number of relatively common SNPs are known to influence nutrient requirements. These SNPs or genetic markers may signal susceptibilities to certain heath conditions but the SNPs don't cause disease.
