Your DNA is not your Destiny

 

Your DNA Is No Longer Your Destiny

 

Is your destiny written in your DNA? For years, scientists believed that a person’s DNA – the complex genetic code that carries all the information needed for your growth and development – was a fixed and unchanging set of “instructions” that directed the body’s processes from birth to death. But new insights from the emerging field of epigenetics suggest that these genetic instructions can be modified by external factors, with profound implications for health, wellness, disease and the aging process.

Dear New Year’s Resolution–it was nice while it lasted.

 

 

Dear New Year’s Resolutions,

 

It was nice while it lasted.

 

Sincerely,

 

February

 

Now that we are 31 days and counting into 2017, many of us are admitting defeat in our list of resolutions.   Excuses are as varied as the initial intentions.  The dryer shrunk my jeans, there’s no time to exercise, but at least the cookies were gluten free.  As I scan through Facebook entries and personal blogs, the recurring theme is one of self-deprecation.  So, what’s the point?

It’s football time in Tennessee!

 

This is quit a common saying that can be heard in the hills of  east Tennessee this time of year.

 

Football season is upon us.  Particularly, college football season and the Tennessee volunteers.  The night air has cooled (a bit).  Summer camps have ended.  It is time for football.  I won’t hide my allegiance to the Tennessee volunteers.  I am a vol for life.  Where ever your allegiance lies, Georgia, Ohio State, or heaven forbid Alabama (just a friendly jab for all my Bama friends), these are exciting times.  

 

This is the time of year that all fans can be excited.  All fans can chant “we are #1”.  All teams have no losses.  The sky is the limit.  Optimism is as real as the coming change of leaves.  Yet, there is one thing that can quickly dash all hopes and optimism—it is called injuries.  A recent article highlighting the injury situation at Tennessee after pre-season camp caught my attention.

Man Boobs to Metabolic Syndrome–Muscle loss

 

Testosterone and Muscle loss in men.

 

Ninety-eight percent failure rate!  Who would initiate something that had a 98% failure rate; let alone, repeat the failure over and over again?  It sounds sadistic.  It is the definition of insanity. But, that is exactly what Americans do with weight loss.  With such a low success rate in the weight loss industry, one might conclude that there is little $$ value in the weight loss industry.  That assumption would be wrong.  According to the 2014 status of US market on the weight loss industry, the value of the weight loss industry was valued at $60.8 billion.   That is $60.8 billion for a success rate of 2%.  That makes the government look like a well-oiled, efficient machine—not!

 

Why do 98% of weight loss programs fail?

 

Do weight loss programs fail to help people lose weight?

Man Boobs to Metabolic Syndrome

“Androgen use and abuse is increasing in our society, either for therapeutic or recreational reasons”. —Vascular Health Risk Management 2008

 

If Testosterone in men is simply ED and low libido, then Testosterone is nothing more then recreation.  But, if low Testosterone is associated with metabolic dysfunction and this metabolic dysfunction has implications for disease development, then low Testosterone and thus Testosterone therapy has a therapeutic role in a man’s Health.

 

Does low Testosterone increase Cardiovascular disease in men?  Does Testosterone therapy increase Cardiovascular disease in men?  Is low Testosterone even a problem in men, or is it simply a marketing fallacy?  Is Testosterone the effect or the cause?  Is there a timeline of low Testosterone in the development of disease for men?  Are men simply Testosterone fueled erections as marketing implies or is Testosterone simple one piece of the puzzle in men’s health?  Lets look for answers to these questions in science, not in opinion.   Is Testosterone the cause, the effect, or both?   The answer is yes, yes, and you guessed it—yes.
