Study Confirms CFS Patients Benefit from Folate

Folinic acid (a derivative of Folate) was found to be effective according to a study (PDF). Folinic acid was used at 25 mg a day for 1-2 months.

Think Supporting Methylation is an Alternative Health Fad?

Science goes a process of discovery and de-discovery (when a discovery is proven to be a false discovery).

You Are Not the Result of Your Genes

The first thing to realize when you are using genetic data is that you are not the result of your genes (most of the time anyway). You are the result of your gene expression and heritable changes in your gene expression. This is also known as epigenetics. What does this mean? You can’t look at […]
