Abstract: Brain degeneration and neurodegeneration are driven primarily by the immunoinflammatory response and many factors drive this response. We can't change your DNA. DNA is your genetic blueprint and lifestyle choices can do nothing to change that blueprint. However, the field of epigenetics has shown that you do have the ability, based on your lifestyle choices to create an environment that can either stimulate or inhibit the genetic expression of your risk factors. Healthy living can not only reduce the severity of health issues, it can also be instrumental in reversing them as well.
