4 Everyday Things That Can Change Your DNA

Scientists discovered the “allergy gene” and are convinced that allergies are eventually a genetic anomaly that can mutate. Under this logic, scientific studies went on to conclude that human genes are not static. In fact, genes can and do change during the life of a person. Lifestyle and diverse environmental factors can transform and destroy the DNA. This process goes on from generation to generation, changing the data that we currently know. The truth is that a number of everyday things have already affected the human DNA. Here are some of them:
Cell phone radiation
For years, scientists have insisted that the radiation from mobile phones affects the human DNA. Several studies have confirmed that, but most of us still insist on holding the headset at the ear, despite the fact that technology offers us handsfree. However, many wireless headsets even increase the radiation to the brain, thus being just a bad choice. One solution is using… seaweed, which as we know can “pull” the radioactivity from the body, but surely this solution is not feasible on a daily basis… So at least try to avoid too many conversations on your mobile phone and remember to always use handsfree.

Insecticides and fertilizers
Another enemy of DNA is pesticides and fertilizers, which are consumed by everyone… with food. Even if you’re a fan of organic products, the truth is that you cannot avoid them. The frequent injections are made, for example, to kill mosquitoes and other insects, using chemical insecticides, which not only are harmful to health but also can alter the DNA. The same applies to fruits and vegetables, which undergo different procedures aimed at acceleration of maturation and using special fertilizers, which contribute to the mutation of the DNA. A good solution is to prefer organic products, but even they cannot fully protect us from the process of “mutation”.
