Genes NOT the Cause of Many Diseases

A new study published by The Bioscience Resource Project offers further support to something that we have long shared with our patients and clients: genes are not necessarily the cause of common diseases.

Researchers from around the world came to a similar conclusion: though there are genetic factors that make people susceptible to many diseases, very few are strong enough to be of any importance.  These findings could have an effect on how we look at the development of  heart disease, stroke, cancers, diabetes,  autism, ADHD, dementia,  schizophrenia, and depression.

Study authors are explaining their results in a way that will be very familiar to those who know how we approach health at Natural Eye Care.  Factors like diet and nutrition, lifestyle habits, and stress management all play key factors in the development of disease. Source: lef.org
