Could it Be?

Rumbles have abounded for a time that genes are not static. Remember when we could say, oh, I just got a bad gene - say for instance, referring to depression or a physical ailment, or even a way of acting?

Research is now leading scientists to believe that the actual gene can be changed by outside influences, some researchers going as far as to suggest that even our thoughts and words can influence our genetic makeup. This is good news. It could be bad news for us poor souls who tend towards seeing the negative side - but I'm determined to make it good news.

This will put much of our health responsibility upon us, rather than doctors. Big Pharma and the medical profession will not look happily upon this discovery until they can figure out a way to make money from it, so be prepared for a battle for a while. It'll be interesting to follow!

I do think that attitude is half the battle...and I would be excited to hear that science finds "proof". I think there are people who are young at heart...and they fight gravity and thats part of "seize the day" attitude.

And baby...you've got it!
