Fit-Bullet Friday #5

FitCorner's Friday Fit-Bullets #5.
  • Study: A recent study looks into obesity and how it can lead to specific alteration of genes.

    "Essentially, the researchers found that the level of DNA methylation was related to level of body mass index (BMI), a marker of obesity."

    Demerath says, “The work is exciting because it might be possible to design pharmaceutical or dietary or other behavioral interventions that specifically target these epigenetic signatures to avert diabetes and coronary heart disease.”

    Read more on methylation and oxidants.


  • Fun Factoid: "Yoga and meditation can ward off stress and disease."

    This quote is related to my earlier post on nutrition and epigentics. You can read more about where the quote came from here: Harvard Yoga Scientists Find Proof of Meditation Benefit. It's an interesting read.

  • Quote:
    "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails.  Explore, Dream, Discover."
    –Mark Twain
  • Music:  Dada Life - Techno - Swedish DJ duo

 Every Friday I'll blog about topics related to health, fitness, wellness, self-improvement, and other miscellaneous topics I find interesting.
