There’s no such thing as bad weather, only the wrong clothes
Based on Billy Connolly’s insightful observation, Dawn will explore the idea that poor diet and lifestyle choices are the most important factor in fending off carcinogens. Referencing Michael Fenech’s work on the ’nutriome’ which shows that micronutrient deficiencies and macronutrient imbalances may be the most important driving factor behind the genomic instability - one of the recognised hallmarks of cancer - the discussion will look at how we can better protect ourselves against our toxic inner and outer world. Dawn will explore how diet and lifestyle choices impact gene stability and gene expression, highlighting the potential for the emerging science of Nutrigenetics to provide personalised nutrition protocols to support treatment and recovery. Many people find that a cancer diagnosis follows period of intense life pressure that left them depleted physically and emotionally: a perfect storm. By understanding our own ‘nutriome’ - the precise amount of essential nutrients required for optimal genetic health - we can improve our ability to protect ourselves against the elements.
