Lifestyle, not genes, accounts for 80% of chronic diseases like heart disease and type 2 diabetes.—CDCMythMany people assume that conditions such as heart disease and cancer are hereditary and that there’s nothing we can do if our genes are programmed with these diseases.FactFor chronic diseases such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and many cancers, our genes only account for 10–20 percent of risk. The other 80–90 percent of risk is diet and lifestyle. New research finds that our lifestyle choices (the foods we eat, our stress levels, how active we are) can affect our genes.THE SCIENCE OF AGINGTelomeres, the little protective caps on the ends of our chromosomes, get shorter as we age.

my story

TIM KAUFMANFrom Weighing 400 Pounds and Using Crutches to Running MarathonsAt 38, I was morbidly obese, weighed almost 400 pounds, and required crutches for a genetic disorder that weakened my joints. Faced with dangerously high cholesterol and blood pressure, I vowed to make one healthy change a day until I’d completely changed my life.I started small by taking the stairs and walking. After switching to a plant-based diet, I increased those changes to hiking the Appalachian Trail, cycling 100-mile races, and running 5Ks, 10Ks, half-marathons, and marathons! I’ve lost 200 pounds. My blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar levels have all dropped significantly, and I no longer need prescription medications or crutches to ease the pain in my joints. I love that I can now live an active lifestyle.ANGELA MONTANEZWith…

In their official materials, the company now advises the more than 17,000 physicians in their network to recommend the most-powerful yet least-used prescription to their patients: a healthy, plant-based diet and active lifestyle.1 HEART DISEASEHeart disease is the No. 1 killer in the United States, but it is virtually absent in cultures that eat fiberrich, plant-based diets. Several scientists and doctors, including Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn and Dr. Dean Ornish, have…
