How Nutrition Can Trump Genes

Not all that terribly long ago, people honestly had no idea that diet played a significant role in causing or preventing cancer.

They just thought it was a bit of bad luck, or chalked it up to environmental pollutants, viruses, or genetic predispositions. So, people just went on their way, smoking cigarettes and eating burger after burger like it was nothing.

We’ve all learned a lot about health and nutrition since then, and now we are able to pinpoint what specific things in our daily diets that actually “turn on” cancer cells.

Today we have a video for you in which Dr. T. Colin Campbell discusses how he was at the forefront researching at the time since was realizing that nutrition actually did (and still does) have a huge impact on cancer cells inside the body.

Check out today’s video and you’ll learn:

  • How cancer cells can be switched on and off, not unlike a light switch, depending on the types and amounts of protein consumed in the diet.
  • Why genes are still relevant when it comes to determining the health of your physical body, but are NOT the final determining factor.
  • How nutrition can actually control gene expression.
  • Why nutrients of animal origin metabolize differently in humans than nutrients of plant origin.


There have been plenty of debates back and forth surrounding Dr. Campbell’s research and interpretations of those findings, but it is becoming abundantly clear that for humans, a plant-based diet is ultimately what will bring about the most ideal health.
