The first Phenome Center established to research interactions between genes and the environment


Certain people become more susceptible to environmental toxins and food allergens than other people exposed to the very same factors. Why is that? How are some people completely healthy even after they eat food that makes other people very sick? Why are some children in the autistic spectrum disorder growing up in the same environment and eating the same food as their healthy neighbors children?

To research the answers to these growing questions in an increasingly post – industrial modern society used to extremely convenient modes of transportation and fast food, a large scale multi-disciplinary approach is required.  Joining together in this effort are  the MRC-NIHR Phenome Centre, which opened recently in the United Kingdom, with a collaboration between Imperial College London, King’s College London and analytical technology companies Waters Corporation and Bruker Biospin.

The center has ten million pounds of funding for the first five years. However, if you wish to support such relevant research do not hesitate to contact the institute. Studying the phenome will help determine how diet, lifestyle, the environment and genes combine to affect biochemical processes that lead to disease.

Professor Frank Kelly, co-investigator at the Centre and director of Analytical and Environmental Sciences Division at King’s College London, said, “This technology is already in use in medical research but only on a small-scale. With the creation of this new facility, it will now be possible to get a complete and accurate biological read-out of thousands of individuals.” Reported in  Pharmabiz, June 13, 2013. Instruments of the highest degree of sophistication will detect the different types of bacteria naturally occurring in the gut, which can influence our health. Read this previous article on how hook worms can cure multiple sclerosis in some patients or this previous link on “the worm theory and how it could strengthen the immune system”.

The Centre will also include a state-of-the-art international training facility. There are no limits to the breakthroughs in health we might see as a result of this visionary, large data work approach at the NIHR-MRC Phenome Centre.

Worm Theory: to improve the immune system to fight asthma, multiple sclerosis and more


The probiotic way, where you can introduce worms or germs inside the gut by eating them intentionally, is becoming increasingly mainstream (click here). Have we “poisoned” our guts by making it sterile? Have we “killed” our ability to fight invading microbes like common bacterial infections, or usual allergens like pollen in the spring time? Perhaps, we have made our outside environment too clean, say many physicians today. Maybe, you should eat probiotics.

Worms? Yes, eat small worms or tapeworms for a healthier immune system.

Here is a wonderful article that summarizes the many ways discovered around the world that eating worms can make you healthier. Click here to read this article which also lists several scholarly articles from the year 2000 to 2007 where worms are eaten, worms of all sizes and varieties, fed by physicians in the name of clinical research because physicians are desperate to lessen the suffering of their patients. This site is completely devoted to worm therapy and even has a “frequently asked questions” page; so apparently, people who visited the site had several common questions. Some examples of questions were: “Is it safe?”, “Do I have to go to Mexico?”, “What if I want to get rid of my worms?” and more.
