News Flash — Our genes and our DNA do not control life. e
A•
Since the 1950s, we have been taught that our genes and DNA control everything about our body and our health. We hear
a lot about genetic illness. There are apparently genetic causes for everything from Breast Cancer to Diabetes.
• Certified Medicare/

Research laid out by Dr. Bruce Lipton in his book, “The Biology of Belief”, gives us quite a different view of how biological

illnesses are controlled by something other than our genes.

Our body contains over 100,000 proteins and when the human genome project was completed it was determined that • Skilled Nursing
we have only about 25,000 genes. A fruit fly has 18,000 genes and a simple worm has 24,000 genes. We are just a little more
complex than a worm. If our genes controlled everything, we certainly would need more genes than a worm or a fruit fly. • PT/OT/ST Therapies

It is now apparent that there is another controlling mechanism that tells the genes what to do. That way it is possible for the • Home Health Aides

25,000 genes to make more than 100,000 different proteins. That other controlling mechanism is the cell membrane. This is

It is these signals then that control everything. There are four kinds of signals: 1. The chemical environment around the cell,
2. Trauma, 3. Toxins, and 4. Thoughts. • Psychiatric Nursing Services

The thoughts part of this is very interesting. Most of our thoughts are automatic tapes that have been

Since 1972, NCCS (Newaygo County Community Services) has been motivated by a firm commitment to restore,
reshape and enrich lives throughout the communities we serve. We’re still rooted in Newaygo County, but our service
area has grown to harness the benefits of regional collaborations. So after careful consideration, NCCS is moving
forward as TrueNorth Community Services. We chose this name because it accurately reflects the spirit and strength
of our organization. Join us in embracing a new identity that expresses our dedication to making a lasting difference
in people’s lives as we help them find their own “true north.” truenorthservices.org

NCCS is now
