We interviewed Kendra Becker-Mussante (the “genetic genius”) about MTHFR and other SNPs (genetic mutations) that can affect health.

With the mapping of the human genome in recent years, a lot of research has gone into understanding how some genetic differences called SNPs (Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms) play a role in the etiology of disease and chronic health conditions.

Dr. Kendra Becker-Mussante joined us to educate us about some of the more commonly known mutations that can affect kids with autism, ADHD, SPD, autoimmune disorders, allergies and asthma.

Some of the SNPs we discussed are:

  • CBS
  • SUOX
  • COMT
  • GAD65

Dr. Becker discussed how “genetics loads the gun, but environment pulls the trigger“, meaning that just because you or your child has one or more of these mutations does not necessarily mean that a disease or chronic health condition will occur.

Instead, Dr. Becker revealed how diet and lifestyle interventions can affect the expression of these genes and improve health outcomes.
