Studies of human gene expression show that if we choose to make certain lifestyle changes, we can influence whether our genes are “on” or “off.” In fact, our choices can influence an estimated 1,200 of the 1,500 genes that are “on” and probably can influence the other estimated 21,000 that are “off”.
For example, after implementing changes to their physical activity, stress management, and diet regimens, men were able to turn off genes associated with prostate cancer growth and turn on a gene that produced a protein that causes cancer cells to self-destruct. The same principle applies for colon and breast cancer: Lifestyle changes switched on genes that fought cancer and turned off genes that promoted it.
Science tells us that by the time we are about 60 years old, 75% of our health outcomes are determined by our choices. That’s genetic self-engineering: Each healthy act switches on youth-promoting genes and switches off genes that cause us to age. This process is the result of millions of years of evolution. Good choices (and the proteins that are developed because of them) beget more good proteins, and the activation of bad genes begets more bad and destructive genes being turned on.
“An idea is something that won’t work unless you do.” - Thomas A. Edison
By making healthy lifestyle choices, we can self-engineer genetic alterations to both prevent disease and boost longevity. Numbers speak volumes: we are our own gene-whisperers.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
