We all have two strands of it in almost every cell of our body. Every time a cell divides, so does the DNA in the nucleus, so that each daughter cell has its very own copy of DNA. This is called replication. It is very common though, for mistakes to occur during replication. Also DNA can be locally damaged by various chemical agents like toxins, cellular poisons and free radicals.
Dietician Sheela Seharawat, founder member of Diet Clinic has to say that our body has truly magnificent ways of healing itself. As long as these mechanisms are functional and active we are protected. The problems begin when two conditions are present: first, our environment and diet are overloaded with toxins and agents that can easily cause mutations and second we do not provide our bodies the nutrients to make sufficient quantities of the enzymes responsible for the DNA repair and overall protection. In a DNA Diet is emphasizes on eating organic and clean food and eat nutrient rich foods that will ensure the full functionality of your enzymes.
