GENETICS VS. ENVIRONMENT

Genetics vs. Environment

Elaine writes:
I have tried over and over again to show the list that as a scientist having studied genetics for 3 long years along with other courses, that the first rule of genetics is ENVIRONMENT (including food) + GENES = YOUR PHENOTYPE. Phenotype means what you express physicall and mentally. Thus in most chronic disease, we have what is considered mutilfactorial causes. In spite of millions spent to try and find a genetic basis for Crohns, it is mainly an environmental problem caused by an unnatural diet.

Man is adapted throughout millenia with a paleolithic diet (one without grains) and the wonderful thing about SCD is that we are truly consuming such a diet and still have our wonderful baked goodies and desserts.

I was introduced to this diet 7 years ago. Began the diet with my physicians knowledge and was able to go prescription drug free within a year. The diet really works and the book not only gives the how to and recipes, it gives the scientific information to back up the evidence. I highly recommend this book/guide to all that suffer from intestinal disorders.
