Impact of FOOD on our DNA

October, 2016
The Master Responds

Our DNA is built up from amino acids, carbohydrates and minerals. Studies show that 92% of problems like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, arthritis, osteoporosis, joint and muscle aches, etc. occur in our life due to mineral deficiencies; not because of macronutrient deficiencies like proteins, carbs & fats. These minerals play an amazing role in our energy system. Our DNA structure in fact depends tremendously on these minerals. When a pregnant woman indulges in unhealthy habits like smoking, consumption of alcohol & drugs and consumes non-nutritious foods during pregnancy, the child has a high possibility of having multiple disorders like diabetes, cardiovascular problems, autism, attention deficient disorder, and many more.

Stimulants like coffee, tea, drugs, alcohol, and smoking damage our DNA and create a copy of a defected DNA in the child. As a child’s DNA is built on the basis of the mother’s diet, it is very important for every mother to take care of herself during pregnancy, in terms of a diet plan, exercise plan, massages, and stretching & flexibility workout plans. One more factor which plays an important role in the construction of our DNA is MICROORGANISMS.
