Many years ago I wished to write a book entitled Genes are not Your Destiny. Neither is your environment, as Mencius would say, although it plays a big part in it. Go read Mencius and you’ll see.
Bruce Lipton, in his various works (books, videos, etc.), has seconded many of my views in this regard and provides the scientific paradigm for the same opinion. In short, genes do their thing based on what the cellular receptors of your body tell them to do. The inside of the cell doesn’t just decide to go wild, make this protein or that enzyme, but does so based on what the receptors "tell it" to do. Cellular receptors look like hairs or limbs sticking out from the membranes of cells, and twist, turn, wiggle, fold or react … however you wish to word it and affecting the inside of the cell when they do so … based upon what they contact in the bloodstream.
Aha! Immediately this brings up the notion that if you flood your blood stream with good stuff … from good nutrition and supplements, etc. — then good things will happen. Bad stuff and bad things will happen. Continual overexposure to a bad environment provokes an unfortunate reaction as the body tries to compensate but is eventually overwhelmed and cannot. Solution? Better environment, better good stuff to avoid a negative fate, negative outcome. White Fat Cow actually talks about this in a different way, but the same lesson comes forth. Meditation for Beautiful Skin is an entire book built around this concept.
Okay, so if you don’t activate genes because the cellular receptors don’t fire … because you in turn take care of yourself and start doing more of the right things than wrong things, that’s a prescription for healthy living. With this understanding of cellular receptors, we then also have an understanding for why cardiovascular disease, in a family where it dominates, doesn’t seem to strike all the family members …. and also why it can be reversed. Just do the things that don’t activate the receptors to set off the genes. Same for diabetes [see Julian Whitaker's book on reversing diabetes]. Those who eat right and exercise and take supplements designed to counter such a condition, more often than not don’t seem to activate the genes that would imperil them. A doctor would just call this "healthy living" but Lipton decribes it in terms of whether or not you activate receptors based on what you do or don’t do as a habit. In other words, he describes it from the basis of biochemistry and genes.
In short, it comes down to the same old story of exercise and good nutrition. So what about cancer, and preventative masectomies when you find out you have a "cancer gene."
First, there is no such thing as a "cancer gene". There may be a tendency for cancer, but your fate is not in the genes. It’s in what you do or don’t do. So start doing more of the right things if you find out you have this "genetic predispositon" and stop doing the wrong things.
Even the US government says most cancers are caused by environmental factors or there are nutritional causes, Therefore, to maximize your chances of avoiding cancer, eat right, detoxify, make sure your lymph channels are unrestricted, untwisted, untangled, etc. and stay away from pesticides, radiation, excess EMF and so forth.
I talk about breast health in several articles:
I talk about a lot of these things and what to do about them in my Beautiful Skin book, which you should probably pick up if interested. If helps clean you out both internally and externally.
What would I do if I found I had this gene?
Second — lymph drainage massage for the breast every year to keep the lymph channels clear. In my articles I explain how to find someone who can do this.
And of course there are special anti-cancer supplements you can take.
Once or twice a year you should do an immune boosting routine to help clean everything out. That’s why I never worry about colds and flus. They help you rev up your immune system to clean out the garbage that’s accumulated over time, like a typhoon in Asia that comes along every year and blows away the trees and plants that are too weak and encumbering the rest of the vegetation. Recessions do that too, by the way — they come along and get rid of weak economic players too fragile for the economic system.
So genes are NOT your destiny. React but don’t overreact. Change your habits and you change your life. You change your risks, you change everything.
And don’t forget to meditate, too!
