Cells Becoming “Rogue” as We Age and What to Do About It, Part 1


DNA methylation is an important part of the maintenance of normal DNA structure. As we age, a gradual DNA hypomethylation occurs at the genome-wide level.

Anomalies in cell division may be triggered, resulting in the formation of “rogue” cells, or cells not performing the functions they were genetically programmed to do. In this episode Neil Levin from Protocol for Life Balance discusses homocysteine, MTHFR genetic variants, and the impact of methyl donor supplements on overall health. Click HERE for part 2.
