Stop Blaming Your Genes

  • Dipublikasikan tanggal 7 Des 2016
  • A presentation by Rosane Oliveira, DVM, PhD
    Dr. Oliveira describes how a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, legumes, and whole grains changes the way genes are turned on and off to prevent or reverse obesity. A close look into identical twin studies shows that, when it comes to weight and health, daily lifestyle choices matter. Dr. Oliveira also compares the results of differing diets on the health of herself and her identical twin sister.
    Rosane Oliveira, DVM, PhD, is Founding Director of Integrative Medicine at the University of California Davis School of Medicine. She has over 20 years of experience as a molecular geneticist and has a special interest in nutritional genetics and genomics, which explore the interplay between diet and genes in the prevention of disease and promotion of health and longevity. She is a native of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and has lived in the US since 2003. For more information visit the UC Davis Integrative Medicine website:

    Please please: I did not understand the last portion of Microbiome / Microbiota where she states: animal protein vs gut bacteria at around 50 min. Please clarify if possible and if you are totally clear about it.

    This video is so useful. I wish we get teachers like this in our schools!

    Thanks VSH as usual for another excellent talk/video! I've seen Greger, Esselstyn, Ornish, McDougall and Barnard and more and this ranks up there as one of the best presentations I've ever seen Rosane! I will be looking up more talks from you! Loved the excellent visuals/diagrams and coming at it from a genetics perspective that I hadn't seen before + the use of numbers throughout the presentation made it very clear (maybe that's the engineer/math geek in me that likes numbers speaking?). Great stuff! Awesome to hear all that you guys are doing at your university too!

    How can someone stop or even reverse male-pattern baldness? That's gene-related, correct?

      As with any other "condition" or "disease", need to get to the cause. Loss of hair is because the lymphatic system is back up. I will let you guess the organ that is majorly affected in this case. The whole system is acidic, particularly the brain. This never leads to anything good. As far as genes go, you got your lymphatic system from mom, if she was eating well and in good spirits, great. I have a clue that she did not.
      Throwing something on your head, how could that be the answer? One is best to get the entire system alkaline. In a way, wringing out the body, the GI tract, as well prop up the kidneys and adrenal glands.

      IMO, the best thing you can do for MPB is to eat about half a cup of an assortment of nuts and seeds every day. I've noticed that people who "genetically" go bald, also "genetically" tend to have subtle symptoms of fat deficiency: dry flaky skin, raised goosebump skin on the backs of the arms, and one form of dermatitis or another. My hypothesis is that these guys don't utilize omega-6 and omega-3 fat as well, and adding extra sometimes makes a difference, and sometime a huge difference! But about 85% of the time, no.

      yes. but being bald, or having a full head of hair, or anywhere in between, does not affect ones health

      Get your PhIP under control. Or it could just be genes.
      It's probably just genetic. :/ Have you considered shaving your head?

    (fat sedentary man reads headline) "50% of your genes are potato."

    There are now some brands of factory made tofu that have 0 fiber and isolated soy protein. For soy, probably better to eat whole soy, tempeh, natto, edamame, etc.
