Only 5–10% of all cancer cases can be attributed to genetic defects

Cancer is a Preventable Disease that Requires Major Lifestyle Changes

Excerpt: "After sequencing his own genome, pioneer genomic researcher Craig Venter remarked at a leadership for the twenty-first century conference, “Human biology is actually far more complicated than we imagine. Everybody talks about the genes that they received from their mother and father, for this trait or the other. But in reality, those genes have very little impact on life outcomes. Our biology is way too complicated for that and deals with hundreds of thousands of independent factors.

Genes are absolutely not our fate. They can give us useful information about the increased risk of a disease, but in most cases they will not determine the actual cause of the disease, or the actual incidence of somebody getting it. Most biology will come from the complex interaction of all the proteins and cells working with environmental factors, not driven directly by the genetic code.

This statement is very important because looking to the human genome for solutions to most chronic illnesses, including the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of cancer, is overemphasized in today’s world. Observational studies, however, have indicated that as we migrate from one country to another, our chances of being diagnosed with most chronic illnesses are determined not by the country we come from but by the country we migrate to. In addition, studies with identical twins have suggested that genes are not the source of most chronic illnesses. For instance, the concordance between identical twins for breast cancer was found to be only 20%. Instead of our genes, our lifestyle and environment account for 90–95% of our most chronic illnesses."

My comment: Epigenetic factors are associated with genetic changes. Modern scientists already understand how your epitranscriptome is regulated. We all can contribute to our own gene expression and healthy, stable epigenome. Doing so, we also contribute to our children and even their grandchildren because epigenetic alterations are inheritable through several generations.

Gene centric 'science' is false science. Genes are not drivers. Instead, they are followers and libraries for RNA mediated cellular processes. A sequence alteration is a consequence and a result, not a random reason for assumed evolution. There are about 200,000 disease-causing genetic mutations in the human DNA but not a single one is proven to be effective on human adaptation. There are only a few candidates, like lactase persistence and high altitude adaptation. However, these genetic markers don't increase the amount of biological information. And mechanisms involved in those complex adaptations are not regulated by one sequence change.

To have some perspective on how genes are used in most organisms, consider this:

There are only 19 000 protein coding genes in the human DNA. But there are even one million of different proteins in a human body. You can learn more about mechanism called alternative splicing from here:


This mechanism is incredibly complex and it's affected by several factors, like microRNA:s, histone, DNA and multifaceted RNA methylation.

We are not what our genes are. We are what our epigenome is. These clever mechanisms point to creation and Intelligent Design.
