The Mediterranean Diet – Is this the one?! ?
Did you know that the Mediterranean diet, rich in healthy monounsaturated fats, has been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease, increase good HDL cholesterol, and slow down cognitive decline? Despite these benefits, people with certain genes, especially those related to fat metabolism or vitamin deficiencies, may find that this diet is not as beneficial as it would be for others.

Genes Making Waves
Why do men have shorter lifespans?
Researchers believe that as a large percentage of males age, the cells in their body begin to get rid of copies of their Y chromosome. This Y chromosome decluttering appears to put men at a higher risk of diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Leukemia, and largely explains the increased mortality rate in men as compared to women.

A saliva test could determine the risk of prostate cancer
A trial has begun for a saliva test that can potentially identify the top 10% of men who are most at risk for developing prostate cancer. Kickstarting the trial was a major study into the genetics of prostate cancer that identified 63 new gene variants associated with the disease.
Could a father’s stress alter the brain development of his offspring?
A new study in the field of epigenetics explores how a man’s experience of stress can alter microRNA’s within vesicles fused to his sperm. These altered microRNAs can ultimately impact gene expression within his offspring, leading to noticeable changes in development.
