You Can Shut Down Cancer Genes in 3 Months!
|You Can Shut Down Cancer Genes in 3 Months!
Major lifestyle changes including a better diet and more exercise not only helps you lose weight and lower your blood pressure - it actually results in dramatic changes at a genetic level.
Researchers tracked 30 men with low-risk prostate cancer who decided to try lifestyle changes instead of surgery, radiation or hormone therapy.
After just 3 months of eating a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes and soy products, moderate exercise, and daily stress management techniques, researchers found profound changes when they compared prostate biopsies taken before and after the lifestyle changes.
The men had changes in activity in about 500 genes. 48 disease-preventing genes were turned on and 453 disease-promoting genes, including those related to prostate cancer and breast cancer, were turned off.
The study is published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
The research was led by Dr. Dean Ornish, head of the Preventive Medicine Research Institute in Sausalito, California, and a well-known author advocating lifestyle changes to improve health. 'In just three months, I can change hundreds of my genes simply by changing what I eat and how I live?' That's pretty exciting," Ornish said.
