Tracing your Ancestry through DNA testing

It has been in all over the news that Prince Harry and his girlfriend Cressida Bonas are related through their common ancestral blood relative Lady Georgiana Spencer-Churchill who happens to be aunt of Winston Churchill. How were they able to find out this relation? Through the revolutionary genealogical DNA tests.

This is not the first time that DNA tests have uncovered such interesting and eye-opening information. DNA tests have been widely used by individuals and in groups for understanding and finding their family origins, geographical roots and/or ethnic origins. Famous celebrities like Harrison Ford found out his Irish origins through the DNA tests. Hitler descended from the Jews that he detested so much. Even the former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher has been presented with a puzzle from her past. The DNA her daughter of Carol Thatcher shows that 24 percent of her genes are Middle Eastern. This Arab proportion is much higher than for most Brits. DNA test has been one of those radical advances in biotechnological world that has allowed us to uncover our roots like never before.

A Small Change of Diet Could Change Your Life Just Within Days
We often suffer from chronic health problems without knowing the reason. Sometimes the symptoms are hard to explain and seem unconnected to a cause. Melanie Thompson, a resident of Dubai for the last 15 years was suffering from unknown sickness, including feeling unnecessarily tired and overweight. After years of poor health, she discovered that she is intolerant to wheat. Now that she knows, makes all the difference. It is easier for her to avoid problem foods. She is slim, healthy and full of energy- persistent health problems have disappeared. She never thought a simple diet change could make her life so much better.

Does food make you ill?
Nutritionist explains the difference between food allergy and intolerance

Dubai: Each one of us suffers from some form of food sensitivity that we do not know about and the symptoms are triggered by the environment we live in, said a nutritionist.

Dr Sanjida Ahmad, research director at Eastern Biotech and Life Sciences, says there has been no study done to prove that food intolerance is due to the way we grow our foods today. Food hypersensitivity or food intolerance "is more chronic, less acute, less obvious in its presentation, and often more difficult to diagnose than a food allergy," she says. "Symptoms of food intolerance vary greatly, and can be mistaken for the symptoms of a food allergy."
