Digestion

You know the phrase, ‘You are what you eat.’ But the opposite is also true — what you eat depends on who you are. That’s because your genetics can influence how well your body can digest certain foods. Also, many digestive disorders like colon cancer, Crohn’s disease, and pancreatic cancer can be hereditary. Learning how your body reacts to certain foods can help you adopt smart nutrition habits to mitigate these genetic dispositions.

Celiac Disease / Predisposition to celiac disease

For those with celiac disease, gluten-rich products like rye or wheat can be highly toxic. When gluten enters the body, it causes the immune system to respond and start destroying the lining of the small intestine. Other common symptoms include bone loss, fatigue, malnutrition, and even delayed puberty.
