I keep reading in various places about linkages recently discovered between genetic defects and the related health defects which are being discovered as the 'genetic revolution' unfolds.

The sites above contain relevant details of what's been found so far.
I encourage others to add posts on this topic as and when they come across them.

Interesting stuff rhymer. I'm am very interested in this subject. Being a biology guy I have always enjoyed reading about genetics. You want to the wave of the future as far as the 'genetic revolution' is concerned?

Check out the site, yourdnacompass.

Let us know what you think

Well, it's taken a long time for any interest to be shown in the links being discovered between genetic make-up and health risks.

Welcome to Brainmeta by the way!

Apart from your link being an advertisement, my own view on supplements is that they are a poor substitute for established well-balanced diets (unless you don't have one)!

I was hoping for a list of new discoveries of links between genetic 'defects' and the effect they have on humans. I can't complain about the lack of interest shown because I have posted none myself!

Well, there are diets that keep us alive and diets that can make us 'thrive.'

It is doubtful that without supplements, one is getting in optimal levels of key nutrients. Also, there are 'supplements' out there, as you know, that aren't needed per se, but increase well being...think green tea extract, for example.

I guess what I'm saying is that I don't view supplements as a 'poor substitute' to a well balanced diet because:

a. It is extremely hard to truly eat a balanced diet
b. Even if you did, many supplements on the market add to health, even though they may not be found in ample amounts in our diet.

For genetic and disease research, Creative BioMart might be useful.
