Your genes load the gun but it's your diet and lifestyle that pull the trigger. I find when someone hears this they fall into one of two camps:
1. This information is too much responsibility plus, it means having to take a good look at your diet and lifestyle and actually make some changes. For many, this is a hard ask.
2. For others, this information is EMPOWERING, and this is how I encourage you to view it, too. How amazing is it that our genes are not our fate if we so choose? Or at least, so “try”- there are no guarantees.
Quoting from a review:
“Only 5–10% of all cancer cases can be attributed to genetic defects… the remaining 90–95% have their roots in the environment and lifestyle…. evidence indicates that of all cancer-related deaths, almost 25–30% are due to tobacco, as many as 30–35% are linked to diet, about 15–20% are due to infections, and the remaining percentage are due to other factors like radiation, stress, physical activity, environmental pollutants etc.”
Many other diseases have their roots in diet and lifestyle factors too.
Just because your mum had breast cancer doesn't mean you will too.
Just because you have anxiety/depression/ADHD doesn't mean you can't do anything to naturally overcome these conditions.
Just because cardiovascular disease runs in your family doesn't mean you're destined for a heart attack or stroke.
Just because you have IBD doesn't mean there's nothing you can do to put it into remission.
Just because you have an autoimmune disease this doesn't mean you can't reverse it or at least eliminate your symptoms.
