This is the most hopeful research I've ever seen.
This is hopeful. The sad part of it is that Francis Pottenger recognized this back in the 1940's. He also recognized that these switches that affect the expression of our genes are controlled by diet and lifestyle. You can read all about it in the book "Pottenger's Prophecy: How Food Resets Genes for Wellness or Illness" by Gray L. Graham, BA, NTP. This is all based on the fairly new science of Epigenetics. It is a shame that medical community doesn't recognize the huge influence diet and lifestyle plays on our health and their ability to neutralize chronic diseases. They are always looking for a drug to do it.
You are so smart! If I lived close to you I'd just bring some mice over to your house for you to experiment with. I'm sure you would find a cure.
My dogs would kill the mice. :)
Pretty sure the "cure" is getting your body really healthy and strong. Seems too simple.
