You can’t change the one percent!
Did you know that the popcorn that you eat or even a water flea has 32,000 genes while you only have a measly 20,000 genes. So, what makes you unique, different and more complex than other animals or plants? The answer is your Bacteria!
Humas are comprised mostly of 99% foreign genes and only 1% of your own genome. The 99% that make up “you” are bacterial, viral and protozoal genes not human at all!
What makes you different is the state of the constantly evolving bacteria living in your gut, mouth and skin, which is a bigger determinator of your health and longevity.
Now, think carefully. Does it make sense to focus on the 1% of genes that you can’t control, or should you focus on the 99% that is under your absolute control?
