Our genes are constantly turning on or off, depending on what biochemical signals they receive from the body. Exercise changes their shape and functioning, making certain genes active or quite – an important stop on the way to a healthy life

But first of all, what is genetics? Your DNA contains around 20 000 to 25 000 genes – the physical and functional units of heredity. Every gene […]
