Genes have a crucial role in how we look and feel. But, is what we are born with fixed or is there some room to change our DNA through our behaviour and environment? This week's Food For Thought sees registered dietitian Rachel Clarkson and I delve into DNA, the importance of all being unique and how we can harness it to be the best version of ourself.

She helps people use food therapeutically to rebalance their bodies and heal from chronic illness and disease. Lauren shares information about epigenetics, and teaches us how to change genes with food. She also talked about how eating, drinking, breathing, thinking, and feeling have all the power to shift gene expression.Lauren has been practicing nutritional therapy for 10 years, and mindfulness and meditative techniques for much of her life.

Humans spend roughly 70% of their days in a fight or flight response. It is common to be stressed, anxious, and worried. But it's not healthy. These types of emotions resonate at lower frequencies. How can we shift to more positive emotions? And release emotions that may be stored or trapped in our biofield?   Dr. Sina McCullough is the creator of the online program GO WILD: How I Reverse Chronic & Autoimmune Disease and the co-host of the Beyond Labels podcast with Joel Salatin.   Today she explains how stored emotions in our bio-field can dictate the way our genes express themselves, and how emotions like fear, sadness or anger can express genes that create inflammatory conditions. She discusses the ill effects of Adverse Childhood Experiences (known as ACES) and unresolved traumas. She goes over therapies (like tapping and breath work) that help us move emotion through the body to prevent and reverse disease. And she also reminds us of the healing power of self-love and acceptance.   Visit her website: drsinamccullough.com Sign up for our email list on our website: westonaprice.org Order recordings from our 2021 Wise Traditions conference here.

Researchers have known for years that puberty not only changes your body, but also your brain. This is because puberty involves changes in hormones that also attach to your brain cells and change how the brain learns, grows and reacts. These changes are useful because they help shape the brain for new forms of learning but dealing with a teenage boy can be super challenging at times. Listen as Dr. Stewart breaks down what goes on physically, mentally and bio-chemically with a boy teenager.  He also shares with us genetic insight in to why your teen may be different than others and offers insight in to what to look for.  We also discuss the needs of growing boys in regards to nutrition and diet.

The James Webb Space Telescope was first conceived in the late 1980s. Now, more than 30 years later, it's finally set to launch in December. After such a long a road, anticipation over what the telescope will contribute to astronomy is intense. Daniel Clery, a staff writer for Science, joins host Sarah Crespi to talk about what took so long and what we can expect after launch. You might have heard that Greenland sharks may live up to 400 years. But did you know that some Pacific rockfish can live to be more than 100? That's true, even though other rockfish species only live about 10 years. Why such a range in life span? Greg Owens, assistant professor of biology at the University of Victoria, discusses his work looking for genes linked with longer life spans. This week's episode was produced with help from Podigy.

Genetic Engineering has seen astronomical advancement since James Watson first identified the Molecular Structural of the DNA back in 1962. The long and similarly controversial scientific process to decode the Mysteries of the Pandora's Box of Human Biology. What Secret lies ahead? What are the possible potentials to achieve to master the Creational power of the human DNA? Higher Density Living incorporates a hot take on the human competition to the interwoven conflict between Government-funded Scientific Researches and Civilian Academe to unravel the secrets of the Human Genome. The massive human project to simultaneously control scientific progress and civilizational growth has set us back to achieve evolutionary breakthroughs as a collective species in order to unlock a higher path towards creative power in the universe. This podcast segment is part of Dr. Daniel Fry's phenomenal extraterrestrial account that can help us navigate the limits of known human biology and the infinite length of undiscovered human genetics. We aim to target as close as possible to decode and discuss human genomes in a casual fashion inlined with Creational Teachings. No secrets can be harbored forever using Knowledge and Wisdom. Alex and Jason made intricate syntheses of discussions relating to human genomics across the board. Where the political life of man conjoins the revolution of genetic engineering has profound control over the habitus of evolution happening at the biological level. The spiral of depression in the mind, body, and spirit complex is all connected to the molecular structure of human evolution. Nature adapts in every shape and form.  As with the previous discussion, the dangling web of corporate control imposes complete power to exploit purely scientific endeavors for the pursuit of material wealth. The vicious cycle never ends. Let's join Alex and Jason as they discuss the transcendence of Human Anatomy, expanded discussions on Human Philosophy, and Political Biology. www.higherdensityliving.com

¿Por qué las sociedades prehistóricas consideraban a las mujeres diosas y posteriormente vírgenes? Durante el Neolítico y la Edad del Hierro, hubo una sociedad matriarcal hasta que la diosa madre se transformó en múltiples diosas sumerias-greco-romanas que repartían la ayuda a los simples humanos. Las invasiones indoeuropeas darán lugar a un pensamiento patriarcal y la simbología de las diosas será recogida por el cristianismo en las diversas advocaciones y funciones de María como Virgen y Madre de Dios. Jorge Guerra nos introducirá en su visión cómica de algunas cuevas y el periodista Francisco González, autor de “Las huellas de las diosas. Viaje a los misterios de las cuevas” (libro ganador de la X edición del Premio J.A.

But all this new genetic information has people asking: How much do genetics determine our outcomes in life? We all understand that our genes determine our height, hair and eye color, but what about intelligence, educational attainment or financial success? In a new book, The Genetic Lottery: Why DNA Matters for Social Equality, behavior geneticist Kathryn Paige Harden explores these uncomfortable corners of genetics research and explains why our economic and sociopolitical systems need to take it into account.

Today I'm talking with Dr Sylvia Tara all about the internal and external forces that govern fat. How we gain fat, how we lose fat, why your body refuses to let go of fat and how you navigate the confusing diet and fitness world that is constantly telling us that it's all about calorie balance.It's not that I don't believe in calories (obviously they exist), but it's certainly not the most important factor when it comes to weight control for a lot of people. And for too long, people who have failed on diets and find themselves on a downward spiral of negative emotions and feel that they don't have anything to blame other than poor will power. Today, we are going to explain why that's not necessarily the case.Dr Sylvia Tara has a PhD in biochemistry from the University of California at San Diego and an MBA from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. As a biochemist, she was driven to get to the bottom of fat's mysteries and the reasons it vexes us, plus her own struggles with weight and dieting. Her book “The Secret Life of Fat” frames our conversation today and we largely speak about how Gender, Genes, Bugs and even Viruses can determine whether one person absorbs 120 calories and another can absorb 80 calories from the same bowl of cereal labelled as 100. Sounds impossible, but it's true.We discuss the complex biology of fat, how it resists loss, and what to do to remove stubborn fat. And stick around to the end of the podcast where I summarise the main tips to help you live a healthier life that balances an appreciation for why fat shouldn't be demonised and how to live more metabolically healthier.The topic of weight loss may make some people feel uncomfortable. I do my best to make our conversations as compassionate and approachable as possible but please exercise caution if you feel you might be triggered by these topics.

He is also a Professor in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Pharmacology at NYU. He does research on cancer, computational biology, developmental genetics, genomics, microbiome, systems biology, single-cell transcriptomics, gene expression atlas construction, genome evolution. He is the author of The Society of Genes. In this episode, we focus on The Society of Genes. We first talk about the metaphor of the “selfish gene”. We ask if mutations really occur randomly. We get into the idea of “the society of genes”, and discuss how genes cooperate and compete with one another. We discuss pleiotropy and polygenic traits, and what they tell us about how genes work. We talk about the evolution of sex, and what we can learn about genetics by studying cancer. We discuss human genetic diversity, and how to deal with genetic ancestry in medicine. Finally, we talk about epigenetics, gene editing, and some unanswered questions in genetics. -- A HUGE THANK YOU TO MY PATRONS/SUPPORTERS: KARIN LIETZCKE, ANN BLANCHETTE, PER HELGE LARSEN, LAU GUERREIRO, JERRY MULLER, HANS FREDRIK SUNDE, BERNARDO SEIXAS, HERBERT GINTIS, RUTGER VOS, RICARDO VLADIMIRO, CRAIG HEALY, OLAF ALEX, PHILIP KURIAN, JONATHAN VISSER, JAKOB KLINKBY, ADAM KESSEL, MATTHEW WHITINGBIRD, ARNAUD WOLFF, TIM HOLLOSY, HENRIK AHLENIUS, JOHN CONNORS, PAULINA BARREN, FILIP FORS CONNOLLY, DAN DEMETRIOU, ROBERT WINDHAGER, RUI INACIO, ARTHUR KOH, ZOOP, MARCO NEVES, COLIN HOLBROOK, SUSAN PINKER, PABLO SANTURBANO, SIMON COLUMBUS, PHIL KAVANAGH, JORGE ESPINHA, CORY CLARK, MARK BLYTH, ROBERTO INGUANZO, MIKKEL STORMYR, ERIC NEURMANN, SAMUEL ANDREEFF, FRANCIS FORDE, TIAGO NUNES, BERNARD HUGUENEY, ALEXANDER DANNBAUER, FERGAL CUSSEN, YEVHEN BODRENKO, HAL HERZOG, NUNO MACHADO, DON ROSS, JONATHAN LEIBRANT, JOÃO LINHARES, OZLEM BULUT, NATHAN NGUYEN, STANTON T, SAMUEL CORREA, ERIK HAINES, MARK SMITH, J.W., JOÃO EIRA, TOM HUMMEL, SARDUS FRANCE, DAVID SLOAN WILSON, YACILA DEZA-ARAUJO, IDAN SOLON, ROMAIN ROCH, DMITRY GRIGORYEV, TOM ROTH, DIEGO LONDOÑO CORREA, YANICK PUNTER, ADANER USMANI, CHARLOTTE BLEASE, NICOLE BARBARO, ADAM HUNT, PAWEL OSTASZEWSKI, AL ORTIZ, NELLEKE BAK, KATHRINE AND PATRICK TOBIN, GUY MADISON, GARY G HELLMANN, SAIMA AFZAL, ADRIAN JAEGGI, NICK GOLDEN, PAULO TOLENTINO, JOÃO BARBOSA, JULIAN PRICE, EDWARD HALL, HEDIN BRØNNER, DOUGLAS P.

Alejandría?, h. 185-Tiro, actual Líbano, h. 254) Teólogo y Padre de la Iglesia griega. Nacido en el seno de una familia cristiana (su padre murió martirizado en el 202), sucedió a Clemente de Alejandría al frente de la escuela cristiana de Alejandría, que convirtió en un prestigioso centro de teología. Su rivalidad con el obispo Demetrio, que le reprochó haberse hecho ordenar sacerdote sin su consentimiento, lo llevó a exiliarse en Palestina (231). Es autor de numerosos tratados ascéticos, dogmáticos (De principiis), polémicos (Contra Celso) e importantes obras exegéticas, cuyo comentario de las Escrituras se desarrolla en tres direcciones: literal, moral y mística. Exponente privilegiado de la gnosis ortodoxa, fue el primero en concebir un sistema completo del cristianismo, integrando las teorías neoplatónicas. Sus ideas, recuperadas y sistematizadas en los siglos siguientes por una corriente de pensamiento llamada origenismo, suscitaron vivas controversias y fueron finalmente condenadas en el concilio de Constantinopla (553).  |

Why are your kids so different? Why is one kid so much harder to parent than their brothers or sisters? If you have more than one child you know how different your children can be. And so why is this? To answer this I invited an expert on human and molecular genetics Dr. Danielle Dick. In her newest book, The Child Code, Understanding Your Child's Unique Nature for Happier, More Effective Parenting she says, "Why is parenting so darn hard? It turns out there is a simple answer to that question. The reason that parenting is so challenging is that all of that well meaning advice from your parents and friends and pediatricians ignores one of the biggest factors that affects child development-genes. Danielle gives us a powerful, science-driven parenting that helps your child grow into the best version of themself.  Danielle M. Dick, Ph.D., is the distinguished Commonwealth Professor of Psychology and Human and Molecular Genetics at Virginia Commonwealth University, where she directs a research institute on behavioral and emotional health. She is an internationally recognized and award-winning expert on genetic and environmental influences on human behavior.  https://www.thechildcode.com/ https://twitter.com/DrDanielleDick Learn more about your ad choices.

There is a constant cycle of life & death occurring inside of our bodies at all times. Our DNA & how that DNA expresses can shapeshift at any time depending on our environments, mindsets, and food rituals. This is a blessing because the expressions that are not useful (illness & trauma responses) can also shapeshift into something new.In this episode, I am joined by biochemist & holistic nutritionist Karen Hurd to teach us how food and chemicals interact with our genetic expressions.For more information on Karen's work, please visit www.karenhurd.com.To get on the waitlist for my future courses, please click here.

What have genes got to do with inequality? It's a thorny question. But it one that Kathryn Paige Harden squarely addresses in her book and in this episode of Dialogues. She explains the new science of genetics and how it can help understand outcomes like college completion. Along the way we discuss the importance of the disability rights movement, the nature of meritocracy, what luck has to do with it, designer babies, regional inequality, and how one byproduct of her Christian upbringing is an appreciation for the unique and equal value of every person.  Kathryn Paige Harden Kathryn Paige Harden is a Professor of Psychology at the University of Texas, where she directs the Developmental Behavior Genetics lab and co-directs the Texas Twin Project. Harden is also a fellow at the Jacobs Foundation. Having received her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Virginia, her work has focused on genetic influences on complex human behavior, including child cognitive development, academic achievement, risk-taking, mental health, sexual activity, and childbearing.  More Harden Her thought-provoking new book, The Genetic Lottery, can be purchased here.  Harden's previous New York Times op-ed is a great starting place for learning more on this topic.  Read her recent profile in the New Yorker, “Can Progressives Be Convinced That Genetics Matters?” For more, check out her website and follow her on twitter: @kph3k Also mentioned I referred to my paper “The Glass Floor: Education, Downward Mobility, and Opportunity Hoarding”.I write a NYT oped on the same theme, too.
