DESCRIPTION: Measuring the effects of a plant-based diet on the expression of hundreds of different genes at a time, a research group found that an antioxidant rich portfolio of plant foods such as berries, pomegranates, purple grapes, red cabbage, oregano, and walnuts was able to significantly modify the regulation of genes in the blood of volunteers. This is the final video of a three-part series about the latest discoveries on kiwi fruit.

Just because we have a certain set of genes doesn't mean you can't turn them on and off with changes in your diet. See Mitochondrial Theory of Aging (http://nutritionfacts.org/vide....o/mitochondrial-theo and Convergence of Evidence (http://nutritionfacts.org/vide....o/convergence-of-evi and the other thousand plus nutrition and health topics I address at http://nutritionfacts.org/topics/.
