“DNA is not destiny. We have scientific evidence to show that if we change our own behaviour, we change the behaviour of our genes. If you change your lifestyle, particularly your eating and exercise habits, you can change the expression of your genes even after you’ve been diagnosed with a disease. You can lower your risk of disease and/or a recurrence by adopting a healthy lifestyle. Just like a captain that needs to learn how to fly that plane you need to learn how to navigate your body to health. You can be the boss of your DNA. You can be, in essence, Disease-Proof.” – Dr. David Katz, Yale University Prevention Research Centre.
