Want to live longer? Reboot your brain! | September 18, 2022

In the United States about 40 percent of premature deaths — defined as occurring before age 75 — are related to lifestyle choices, behaviors we can change.

Lifestyle and genetics are intertwined, in that your lifestyle choices influence the ways that many of your genes function — and thus how your body functions.

Studies of human gene expression show that if you choose to make certain lifestyle changes, you can influence whether your genes are “on” or “off.”

In fact, your choices can influence an estimated 1,200 of the 1,500 genes that are on and probably can influence the other estimated 21,000 that are off.

In simple terms, according to authors Michael Roizen, Peter Linneman and Albert Ratner, you can “Reboot your brain!”
