How to clean your 'dirty' genes

We've been gifted with the perfect stamp of our Creator's handiwork.

It's the very DNA that make up our genes.

They're so tiny... so complex... so essential to our design.

There's not a chance in the world that DNA could have been caused by "chance" mutations and Darwinian evolution.

They've been there from the very beginning.

But all of those years of exposure to our imperfect world... all of the toxins in our air and water, the poisons in our food, and even the chemicals in the drugs that are supposed to help us... can have a devastating effect on our DNA.

The result is best summed up in the title of the groundbreaking new book by my colleague Dr. Ben Lynch, Dirty Genes.

Damaged DNA leads to "dirty" genes and cells that can struggle and eventually lose function, leading to rapid aging and nearly every type of health problem you can imagine.

And if your own genes have gotten dirty, Dr. Lynch has also got a way to clean them up.

It's a "deep clean" on a level that you never thought possible -- a good scrub that starts on the inside, as you CLEAN your GENES to slow aging, cut your disease risk, and add years to your life.

And you don't even need to use soap for this kind of cleaning project!

Here's an example: High blood sugar levels, inflammation, and poor oxygen (among other conditions) can turn the NOS3 gene "dirty."

Since that's the gene responsible for producing the nitric oxide that dilates your blood vessels for good circulation, the "dirtiness" leads to struggles with nitric oxide, which increases your risk of cardiovascular problems, high blood pressure, metabolic dysfunction, and more.

You can give this gene a good "scrub" with a balance of nitrates and arginine in your diet (think turkey breast, chicken, pumpkin seeds, spirulina, chickpeas, and lentils), as well as calcium, iron, and riboflavin.

Exercise and breathing exercises can also improve oxygen -- and before long, the NOS3 gene can be sparkling clean again.

Bottom line: Your nitric oxide levels will return to normal and your risk of these and other chronic diseases will plunge.

And that's just one example.

Other dirty genes can predispose us to mood problems including depression and anxiety... pain conditions such as fibromyalgia and muscle aches... and metabolic problems that lead to obesity.

These dirty genes can even lead to cancer, Alzheimer's disease, and Parkinson's.

That's the bad news.

The good news is that, as we saw with the NOS3 gene, it's possible to "clean" all of these genes and reverse those risks in a hurry.

And it can often be done with specific nutritional changes.

I'll have more on this -- including the seven main "super genes," how they impact your health, and how to clean them -- coming up in next month's Health Revelations, which will be mailed out shortly.

For even more detail on this subject, be sure to look for Dr. Lynch's book, Dirty Genes, which is available at and bookstores.

I'll have one more way to keep your genes clean coming up later today.
