There was no significant difference in genetic markers between the two groups at the start of the eight-hour test period. However, at the end of the day, researchers found reduced expression of certain histone deacetylase (HDAC) genes and of the genes RIPK2 and COX2 — all of which are linked to inflammation.
These findings are important because of the role inflammation plays in the progress and treatment of disease. Recent research has found that chronic inflammation may be at the core of diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, heart disease, lupus, cancer, ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease.
Dr Robert Atkins made a career from telling people how to cure their ills by changing what and how they ate. . No one took away his license to practice medicine and he was fixing heart disease and type 2 diabetes with diet. Of course the belief is that this was a weight loss diet but that is just the benefit of eating to cure those diseases .
Good article. I read this one along with research from other countries. It is true. Prayer works almost the same way from what I read. Singing hymns also does this. If our medical industry would accept this research, it would negatively impact their pocketbooks. No doctor is supposed to use this stuff unless it is allowed by the ones governing the medical trade. A doctor can be fined or suspended for using or promoting anything not approved. So don't think you are going to hear stuff like this from your doctor unless he is a very good friend of yours and he can trust you to keep your mouth shut. I know of a doctor who lost his ability to practice by telling people to eat certain foods to control their problems. The people receiving the information had success without medications. But now he can't help anyone for a while.
This is in reference to bringing it to the attention of the western world. These are practices with thousands of years behind them but until the 1960s it's practice was little known in the west. The age of Aquarius brought many old ideas to the forefront and made them new again. Just another venture brought to you by the baby boomers.
