Your Genetics Load the Gun, but Your Lifestyle Pulls the Trigger

By Beau Hooker, ND August 14, 2017

Genetics is defined as the study of heredity and the variation of inherited characteristics. In every one of our cells, there are 46 strands of DNA that are tightly coiled into a chromosome. Within each chromosome, it is estimated that we have between 20,000 and 25,000 genes. For the most part, genes are the same in all humans, but a small number of genes are slightly different for each individual. These small differences are what make you who you are and unique from everyone else.

Typically when you or your doctor take your height and weight you end up with a BMI (body mass index) measurement. This is simply a ratio of weight to height and is a somewhat useful tool for determining overweight or obesity when looking at a large population. On an individual level, however, it tends to fall short of revealing the whole story. For example, one can have a very high muscle mass and be labeled as overweight or obese. This is typical of many athletes and bodybuilders, but does not reflect the average person.
