let’s talk about nutrients and your life spanned how much have been influenced do nutrients have on how long you live the first thing to know is that you are as strong as your weakest link okay how do people die nowadays either they get cancer heart attack their kidneys fail to end up with a respiratory infection that they die of some lung infection so there’s various weaknesses within our bodies that fail and then that shorten our lifespan so if we dig down into what makes up an organ and or and is you have the DNA so really what’s happening at the cellular level as you’re getting DNA damage okay you’re getting breaks within the DNA and then what’s happening is your body’s trying to repair it really fast per day each cell you having about 60,000 sets of DNA that are being damaged on a daily basis and your body’s coming in and repairing that when you fail to repair the damage or the free radical damage is too strong then you start aging you start breaking down in certain organs you start getting chronic inflammation and it you become susceptible to getting disease so if you have two people in a plane okay and one person gets sick the other person doesn’t even know that there could be a virus in the plane that person that got sick got sick because their resistance was lower they were more susceptible to getting that virus or bacteria and this is what you need to know the importance of nutrients and keeping your DNA and your genes stable and strong I’m going to show you a report by an author Bruce Ames okay Bruce Ames is 91 years old he’s a professor of biochemistry and molecular biology at Berkeley he’s going strong incredible review DNA damage from micronutrient deficiencies is likely to be a major cause of cancer what DNA damage from micronutrient deficiencies that would be vitamins and minerals is likely to be a major cause of cancer this is what he a deficiency of any of the micronutrients folic acid b12 b6 niacin that’s b3 vitamin C vitamin E iron or zinc mimics radiation and damaging DNA Wow so here you have this damaged DNA from radiation UV light pollution bad foods etc but I bet you never thought nutritional deficiencies can cause the same damage as radiation that’s a pretty powerful statement but the question is why because all of these nutrients are involved in the repair action they’re involved in keeping the DNA stable and if you’re missing a nutrient at a certain level you’re going to be susceptible to some type of breakdown in the system now Bruce Ames also talks about the triage theory okay now in medicine triage is this if you have all of these patients coming in that are sick you want to be able to delegate your resources to the ones that need the help the most okay so you’re actually rationing out your energy on the most severe cases okay well guess what the body does the exact same thing so if you have a subclinical nutritional deficiency you’re not fully completely deficient but you have somewhat of an efficiency the body’s gonna ration out those nutrients to the short-term survival proteins or enzymes okay and what’s going to suffer is the genes and enzymes that are involved in longevity and repair and in this paper Bruce Ames talks about how these deficiencies sub clinically shorten your lifespan and set you up for getting cancer now the question is what would be some of the clues or red flags or symptoms of having a shorter life span or having cancer there really isn’t any you just one day you die up a shorter life span or you just get cancer so there’s not a lot of symptoms so that means it doesn’t draw a lot of attention for you to do something about it the only way you’re going to know about this is watching this video and understanding this you connection between making sure that you have all the nutrients in your diet eating foods that are nutrient dense and how important that is to bulletproof your genes and your DNA down the road to extend your life and hopefully postpone or prevent cancer so my main goal for this video is to emphasize the huge importance of nutrients on your health and especially longevity and preventing cancer and other problems down below in the description I put down a list of the foods that have the highest nutrients that you should be eating on a regular basis check it out and thanks for watching if you’re liking this content please subscribe now and I will actually keep you updated on future videos

In this video, let’s talk about nutrients and your lifespan. How much of an influence do nutrients have on how long you live?
You are as strong as your weakest link. There are various weaknesses within our bodies that fail and then shorten our lifespan.
Your body is constantly trying to repair DNA damage. When your body fails to repair the DNA damage, or the free radical damage is too strong, you start to age, and your body begins to breakdown.
One study reports that DNA damage from micronutrient deficiencies may cause cancer.
Why are nutrients important? Because nutrients are involved in the repair action, which helps keep the DNA stable. If you’re deficient in a nutrient at a certain level, you’re going to be susceptible to a breakdown within the system.
The triage theory:
If you have somewhat of a deficiency, your body is going to ration out nutrients, and your genes and enzymes that are involved in longevity and repair will suffer.
Unfortunately, there are no real symptoms of having a shorter lifespan. That’s why I really want you to understand that you need to make sure you have all of the nutrients in your diet to extend your life.
