There is no amount of Medicine by Chemistry or Supplementation - That will cure a Bad Diet" ...70GoingOn100.

Duh, folks we have a Duh Moment (DM). After 104 years, from Harvard T.H. Chan - School of Public Health we have this bit of wisdom ... Precision Nutrition: can nutrigenomics testing lead to improved diet quality and better health outcomes?
... Precision medicine - tailoring drugs and therapies to a person’s genetic profile - has been touted in recent years as a way to maximize the benefits of treatment while minimizing side effects. Experts are now wondering if personalizing an individual’s diet according to their DNA profile - called precision nutrition - can also improve health ... Duh.

Historical View | Sugar Consumption vs. Epigenetic Effects

The data is indicating that there is a threshold, 10kg/22lb per year/person, and of above this the body does not seem to be responding well. A threshold where Refined Farming Products start to become dominant, triggers a metabolic response. Besides Obesity ... the Obesogenic Diet, there is a corresponding increase in diseases from Metabolic Syndrome and Inflammation.

Metabolic Corruption by Carbohydrates

Sugar Consumption vs. % Population Obesity

, from this chart it is indicated that there is more to the story of Obesity ... the Obesogenic Diet over the last 100 years. This could be a case of the Compounding Effects of Epigenetics. There have been 4 generations of High Consumption of Carbs - Beyond a Metabolic Tolerance this defines Carbohydrate Intolerance as Insulin Resistance. We know that diet can change our gene expression through Epigenetic Processes.

The data is indicating that there is a threshold, 10kg/22lb per year/person, and of above this the body does not seem to be responding well to this dietary environment. Also, besides Obesity ... the Obesogenic Diet, there is a corresponding increase in diseases from Metabolic Syndrome and Inflammation.

Salt and Potassium Requirements -

New Research - Optimum Salts Intakes

A newer study out of Canada show optimum Salt (Na+ - sodium) and Potassium (K+) for human health. This 101,945 persons in 17 countries and estimated 24-hour sodium and potassium excretion with a mean follow-up of 3.7 years. Study changes our understanding of Sodium and Potassium. (22) [O’Donnell, et al. 2014.]

    In this study, sodium and potassium intake was estimated on the basis of measured urinary excretion.

  1. According to researchers, an estimated sodium intake targeted at 4-5 gm/day might be better. However, the Optimum range is a parabolic function, as the window for “Optimum” is centered, but interestingly, too little salt seems to be worse or just as bad as too much …
  2. And, a higher estimated excretion of potassium was associated with a reduction in the risks of death and cardiovascular events on multivariable analysis …

Insulin Resistance Responses -

Insulin Resistance - Carbohydrate Intolerance

We only see the response to Carbohydrate Intolerance as Modern Diseases ⇒ Atherogenic dyslipidemia, Gout, Hypertension, Obesity, and CVD. These are Responses not Causes – but presents as a genetic predisposition that progressively worsens with age as a result of a high carbohydrate, high sucrose, high fructose diet and physical inactivity.

Notes:

  1. Aspartic and glutamic acid function within your central nervous system as excitatory neurotransmitters that work to stimulate your brain, according to HumanNeurophysiology.com. Independently, aspartic acid's main function is to assist in the synthesis of other amino acids. Glutamic acid functions in sugar and fat metabolism, supplies glucose to your brain, plays a role in thought and memory and facilitates potassium transfer through the blood-brain barrier. (8)

Curbing Cancer's Sweet Tooth

Dr. Tan is introducing Veterans with advanced cancer to a ketogenic LCHF - (high-fat, adequate-protein, low-carbohydrate) diet. This eating plan starves cancer cells while still meeting a patient's nutritional needs.
