What are genes?
How do genes affect our health?
Experts estimate that every person carries about 2.000 genetic defects in themselves. A brief introduction to the world of genes, explains in more details how genes control our body and why genetic defects can cause diseases.
Causes of our health weaknesses
What causes genetic defects?
Gene defects can be caused by a variety of factors, but mostly the defective genes that we have inherited from our parents have the greatest negative impact on our health.
What are SNPs?
SNPs - The source of our individuality
Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are a change of an individual base in a DNA strang. Find out what Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) are, and how they affect your health.
The science of genes
Genes and obesity
So far, eight genes whose defects have an impact on body weight and diet efficiency have been identified. You can also read here on which research foundations the genetic testing services DHC and DNC are based.
Genetic testing for health care
Genetic testing application
The future of medicine, in which every human being is to sequence his entire genome in order to follow better, person-specific, preventive measures, is eagerly awaited by many medical professionals.
How are the genes selected?
The selection of the risk genes
Find out more about the basis on which the relevant risk genes were picked and included in our program, and why the final report refers only to the genes relevant for preventive health care.
