Bad eating habits can scar your DNA

Bad eating habits could be passed onto the next generation, according to this new study.

Bad eating habits can scar your DNA

Scientists claim that bingeing on junk food on a regular basis is not only bad for you, but can scar a person’s DNA.

Published in the Nutrition Journal, the findings suggest that unhealthy eating habits can be passed on to the next generation, leading to a greater risk of inflammation, allergic reactions, auto-immune diseases, infection and even cancer.

Of particular concern is the regular junk food habits of some, which if consistently indulged in, can become encoded in DNA and damage the gut’s microbiome (environment).

The new research suggests that food choices permanently change the balance of bacteria in the gut and can weaken the immune system over time. Doctors recommend that people cut out processed sugars and fats from their diets and include more fresh sources of protein and natural fats.
