Be careful! Six Disease Heritage Mother

The fruit falls not far from the tree. Proverb that could describe the life of a child in the family. Not just about personalities, but also the health of children that duplicate the genetic parents.

Studies Institute of Cancer Research at the University of London, reveals that girls have a higher risk of suffering the same disease with the mother.

The extent to which maternal genes play a role in disease progression in girls? Here are a number of genetic diseases that are affected, as quoted from page Daily Mail:

1. Migraine
According to Dr. Kate Henry, a neurologist from the University of New York, 70-80 percent are girls who will get a 'legacy' headache this part of the mother. The researchers found the gene defect called tresk.

Gene that causes migraine. If this gene does not work properly, lingkunag factors such as sound, cheese, caffeine can more easily trigger pain in the brain that cause migraines. When the gene
damaged in patients with less active will cause severe headaches.

Many migraine sufferers are very sensitive to some foods such as chocolate, coffee, cheese, orange, and red wine. Hormones are also very influential because of the rise and fall of estrogen and progesterone
during the menstrual cycle can cause migraines.

2. Breast Cancer
There are three percent of breast cancer patients in England get the cancer cells 'heritage' mother. Women who carry BRCA1 or BRCA2 genes are mutated will be easier to pass on his condition to her daughter. "Most women with this gene mutation will develop cancer at a very young age," says Dr Elizabeth Rapley, cancer geneticist from the Institute of Cancer Research.

Women who have a history of cancer in the family are encouraged to conduct genetic screening to be easily monitored. In addition, it is advisable to always live a healthy life by keeping your diet and sleep patterns, and avoid habitual smoking and drinking alcoholic beverages.

3. Depression
There are 10 percent of women experience depression due to inheritance from the mother, according to research by the U.S. National Institutes of Health's National Institute of Mental Health. Mental illness such as postpartum depression and bipolar disorder is known to occur in families.

Scientists have isolated a mutant gene, called tryptophan hydroxylase-2, which may cause depression. This mutant gene causing starvation of the brain to serotonin, a hormone that regulates mood using chemical messages. However, a direct genetic link has not been proven until now.

Women who have a history of depression in the family are encouraged to stay away from stress, panic, and alcohol consumption may increase the risk of depression.

4. Obesity
According to research conducted in Britain, a woman who has a copy of the FTO gene is 70 percent higher risk of obesity than women who do not have a copy of the gene. Another study found that only four percent of girls are obese, even though his mother had normal weight, and there are 41 percent of women are obese because her mother was also obese.

Those who carry a duplicate version of the fat of the FTO gene have weight three kilograms heavier than those who do not have a copy of the gene. Another study published in the International Journal of Obesity in 2009 stated, there is a strong relationship between mothers and daughters of obesity, as well as father and son over obesity.

With these facts, it is advisable for children to always keep your diet by limiting calorie intake and activity in the house which makes it inactive, and exercise

5. Early Menopause
There is 70-85 percent of women experience premature menopause if her mother is also experiencing the same thing. One in 20 women experience menopause before age 46 years with an average age of menopause in women that is 51 years. Research conducted by the University of Exeter said 85 percent of premature menopause caused by the influence of genes.

Treatment for ovarian cancer and surgery in early menopause may increase risk. Unfortunately, there is no way to prevent this.

6. Heart Disease
More than 20 percent risk of heart disease occurs if the mother had experienced heart attacks or chest pain that causes obstruction of blood flow in blood vessels.

An Oxford University study found that women who had a mother with a stroke, have a greater risk of heart attacks and strokes. The study found that inheritance of vascular disease can affect the heart and brain arteries.

However, there is no scientific explanation that explains the role of genes in disease. The important thing is always running a healthy lifestyle so the weight loss maintained. Keep all body from excessive consumption of fat and salt, and is highly recommended not to smoke and consume alcohol.
