PROBABLY THE MOST IMPORTANT NUTRITION DISCOVERY IN HISTORY.
says Dr. Sian Astley one of the leaders of the research team.
the news broke out in the United Kingdom that British scientists
had broken the code that translates into direct recognition
of the role some genes play in nutrition, it caused editorial
mayhem throughout the world.
a poor understanding of what the discoveries meant to overstatements
that some common foods could kill, the real message came slowly
to the surface. What the analysis of genes which had been
found to have a direct connection
with what we eat revealed, was that most of us carry variants
or mutants which either perform normally or not very well.
These genes which are extracted from the dna found in the
saliva cells, throw up alarm signals which need to be attended
to as early as possible in life or face potential consequences
like cancer, bone decalcification, heart problems and diabetes.
