hey there

This week we welcome Kashif Kahn to the Better Show to talk about Genetics. Kashif is the CEO of The DNA Company, and we were able to speak in depth with him about our predeterminants that will impact many aspects of our lives. We began talking about DNA reports, why copy variants are super important in gene reporting. Clinicians listen up because we spoke about androgens and hormones such as testosterone and estrogen. We dove deep into Methylation, and more specifically the COMT gene and it’s role in methylation and how it impacts a person’s personality and their aversion to risk. We had a very nuanced discussion about Autism, and the ability to detoxify adjuvants in vaccines and the environment as a predisposition for someone being exposed to those toxifants. We rounded out the conversation talking about fat and carbohydrates and how much of a role our genetic makeup plays in how we process them. We also touch on EQ and IQ, and just an overall interesting conversation if you are a parent or family member that may be be interested in our genetic makeup. Thank you Kashif for being our guest and we cannot wait until the next one!
