Nature vs. Nurture: A Matter of Personal Taste

[fa icon="calendar'] Aug 30, 2018 11:08:21 AM / by Rom Zarchi posted in Genetic Testing 2 min read time

The clock strikes twelve. Dead of midnight. With no one around to judge, you make your way to the fridge to officiate the sweet-end to a stressful and sweaty day. And there it is; your favorite food, the one you’d rather not think of as a dessert even though it’s ridiculously packed with sugar. You smuggle it like contraband back to the couch but on the way there, you catch a glimpse of your reflection in the hallway mirror. It’s not an inspiring look, and you can’t help but wonder, why am I like this? Should I be eating this? Am I hardwired to eat junk around midnight or has it just been a long day? It’s enough to get you thinking about it. It might even be enough to keep you awake later than you planned. And it’s not just you, but also me and most everyone within close range of a promising fridge or anyone with some stress on their plate.

Bitter Foods. Love 'em or hate 'em?

[fa icon="calendar'] Aug 16, 2018 1:14:14 PM / by Kev F. MacDonald posted in Healthy eating, Diet & Eating 2 min read time

Do you like bitter leafy greens and enjoy hoppy IPA’s or do you cringe when you even think of these items? It is true that your taste buds mature as you age and can change over time, but overall taste is one of the many things that can be influenced and even determined by your genes. The aversion to bitter tasting foods and drinks comes from many years of evolution and could have even saved your life thousands of years ago. This means that your taste choices may, in fact, be a result from your genes and not just you being a “picky eater”.

Athletes: Born or Made?

[fa icon="calendar'] Jul 31, 2018 1:13:11 PM / by Kev F. MacDonald posted in Exercise 3 min read time

After watching the four-game sweep of the NBA Finals by the Golden State Warriors and the incredible athleticism in the World Cup, I find myself asking, “What does it take to become an extreme or professional athlete?” The question of whether athletes are born or made has been around as long as people have been competing. Is it genes inherited from parents, work ethic and dedication, or amount of practice? The trouble is, this question is so hard to answer due to all the different factors in someone’s life. 

There are genes however that can influence what sports your body will naturally be better at.
