Sometimes i'll research about the Genome and so i came across an article by the prestigious ''Journal of Physiology'' showing that our Genomes are still acting (expressing) like our Cro Magnon days going back 50,000 b.c. and farther back and that when we exercise certain Genes express for health and wellness so that we survive and when we become sedentary they express for chronic disease and early death.

For thousands and thousands of years we walked everywhere and sprinted after prey before agriculture came into play about 10,000 years ago. Good to see these Gene experiments show this about our ''ancient'' genes we all still carry.

Anyway something to pass along and some short abstracts of the studies for those interested.

My appologies as i can not get it to link up??

It basically stated that after just 2 weeks of high intensity exercise that 450 genes upregulated and 150 downregulated to make the WBC's better able to defend the body.
