DID YOU KNOW that some of the most prestigious hospitals in the country are rolling out preventive genomics clinics for healthy patients?
Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston and University of California at San Francisco are opening preventive genomic clinics to the public. Mayo Clinic is already offering preventive genomics to business executives.
This further legitimizes why we started our own preventive genomics model four years ago. Moreover, we have a huge advantage on even the best hospitals because we have intimate knowledge on how to address genetic prevention from the wellness perspective!

BONNIE'S POWER BREAKFAST BOWL
Everything you need for a quick, energy-packed breakfast!
-3/4 cup cooked quinoa (left-over or organic precooked from Trader Joe's or Whole Foods)
-1/2 cup organic greens (arugula, baby kale, baby spinach, or Swiss chard)
-2 organic cooked eggs (any style)
-(optional) sautéed diced onion, grape tomatoes, and/or sliced mushrooms (sautéed in oil or Earth Balance)
-dash of salt and pepper.
Spoon the quinoa into the bowl first after mixing it with the optional sautéed vegetables. Then add the greens. Finally, top with the cooked eggs and a dash of salt and pepper.
PURE GENOMICS RESEARCH UPDATE
Steve: You may remember last summer, we performed out first ever clinical study on Pure Genomics results and certain chronic conditions. You can read about last summer's results here.
This summer, we updated and expanded upon last year's study with the help of a very dedicated intern from Syracuse University, Sophia Gertz. Please join us in thanking Sophia for all of her hard work in helping to make this happen.
**Increased risk is based upon self-reported or family history of overweight and obesity, and the genetic results for each of the three genes below. ANOVA testing was used. All results had p values well below 0.5.
GENES ASSOCIATED WITH OVERWEIGHT AND OBESITY FTO - "Overweight and Obesity Gene" 2 mutations exhibit higher risk versus no mutations 2 mutations exhibit higher risk versus 1 mutation 1 mutation exhibits no significant risk versus no mutation Summary - data indicates that the risk of overweight and obesity with 2 mutations is much higher than 1 mutation or no mutations. This confirms results from last year's sample size. MC4R "Appetite Regulation and Craving Gene" 2 mutations exhibit greatly increased risk versus no mutation 2 mutations exhibit higher risk versus 1 mutation 1 mutation exhibits higher risk versus no mutation Summary - While last year's sample size was too small to get a true result, we were surprised by how robust the risk of overweight and obesity was between having 2 or 1 mutations versus no mutation form this year's larger sample size. PPARG "Fat Malabsorption Gene" 2 mutations exhibit higher risk versus no mutation 2 mutations exhibit no significantly higher risk versus 1 mutation 1 mutation exhibits no higher risk versus one mutation Summary - The larger sample size brought us a major connection between 2 mutations versus no mutation. Conclusion: We purport that all three of these genes have major implications in managing the risk, development of, and treatment of overweight and obesity. All three gene expressions can be addressed using myriad techniques. NOTE: All three of these genes are highly malleable with the right individualized lifestyle recommendations! BONNIE'S GRAB-N-GO MEAL BOWLS
The following formula for bowls (glass with a tight lid is best) give you a delicious, easy to prepare and ready to eat full meal for less than 500 calories. I recommend bringing the ingredients fully cooked and chilled, but all combinations can be heated/warmed, if desired...This article is reserved for NCI Well Connect Members.
