The Heredity Myth
Stop Blaming your condition on your genes and start getting healthy. Being taught to blame your genes on heredity is being taught to take a “victim” mentality instead of being a victor.
Researchers from Sweden studied more than 44,000 pairs of identical twins from Denmark, Finland, and Sweden.
They compared the rates of 11 different cancers. By calculating the incidence of the same cancer in both twins, the researchers were able to roughly estimate the role of genetic factors. Identical twins have identical genetic makeup. So, if you believe that your health condition comes from heredity, both twins should have an extremely high chance of having the exact same condition. Instead, what the researchers found was that if one of the pair developed cancer, the odds of the other twin developing the same cancer turned out to be less than 15%.
This means that, based on the results of the study, diet, lifestyle, and environment are 85% more important than heredity.

The most important thing you can do for your health is to keep the system that controls and coordinates “everything” healthy- The Nerve System. The brain and Nervous system is the master control system of the body. All nerves from this master control system come out of the spine. If the spine gets out of alignment (a subluxation), it dramatically affects the nervous system, having a devastating effect on the health of the entire body and a negative effect on the quality of life of the individual.
Chiropractors remove these subluxations, improving the health,m restoring function, enhancing maximum health potential and increasing the quality of life of every individual under chiropractic care-especially senior citizens.
