Nutrients influence epigenetics

Postby jimmylegs » Mon Apr 02, 2012 7:50 pm

Take any nutrient known to be trouble in ms, or any nutrient whatever, google it along with the terms 'genetic expression', and you can read up on the science that's been accumulated on how food affects genes. super interesting. for example i just did some research along these lines for someone concerned re risk of huntington's. came up with interesting connections between the copper-zinc ratio and the TP53 gene -> p53 tumor suppressor protein which regulates the levels of huntingtin gene expression. fascinating.
odd sx? no dx? check w/ dietitian
DRI=MINIMUM eg bit.ly/1vgQclQ
99% don't meet these. meds/lifestyle can affect levels
status can be low in ms & other cond'ns
'but my results are normal'. typical panels don't test all
deficits occur in 'normal' range

if this topic has the flavour of a non sequitur, that is because the original context has been removed due to advertising concerns.
