Dna and Cell Reprogramming Transcript
DNA and Cell Reprogramming Via Epigenetic Information Delivered by Magnetic Fields, Sound Vibration and Coherent Water
Webinar Transcription with Dr. Carlo Ventura, M.D., Ph.D. and Dr. Rollin McCraty, Ph.D.
Dr. McCraty: Well, good day, everyone. This is Dr. Rollin McCraty, at the Institute of HeartMath. I see a lot of people are still logging in to today’s webinar. So before we start the formal presentation, we’ll give it a minute or two to let those that are still logging in get logged in and synched up.
It’s my great honor today to introduce Dr. Carlo Ventura who’s become a very good personal friend and colleague. We’re starting to collaborate together to do, I think, some rather innovative research in the relatively near future. I asked Carlo to do this webinar because I’m so fascinated by the, really leading-‐edge research that Carlo is doing in the field of epigenetic information and how he’s able to change the programming of stem cells through magnetic fields and sound vibrations. And he’ll also talk about some coherent water work that he’s doing.
So, Carlo, hello and thank you so much for joining us.
Dr. Ventura: Hello, how are you? Thank you very much for the introduction. First of all, I would like to thank you and the Institute of HeartMath for organizing this webinar and for the unique opportunity to be here with all of you.
I would like to focus in this presentation on several features of DNA on the relevance of its architecture and shapes as driving forces that can modulate the expression of genes, unlocking the potential of any given cell to be transformed into the many different subtypes that define the structure and function of our organs throughout adult life.
As you know, DNA is a very long molecule. It’s about two meters long. And it is compacted in a very small nuclear volume with a diameter of only 50 to 70 microns, usually. Only one or two percent of the overall DNA contains coding sequences; that is, sequences that will give rise to a messenger RNA and to a protein that would, in turn, specify the structure and function of our cells.
The huge remnant part was believed to be sort of meaningless garbage structure until very recently. And it is now clear that cell commitment and differentiation is controlled by a complex interplay between the cell signaling, the environment, and the continuous dynamic remodeling of this so-‐called garbage DNA into loops and domains.
We are now understanding that we are facing an architectural DNA that is capable of acquiring a temporal and special organization, what we call epigenetics, shaping and specifying the multifaceted gene expression motifs that are part of the information of life. So the environment is important. We know now that even during pregnancy or childhood we may have adverse event in the environment that can affect epigenetics, the nuclear volume and form and shape in the cells, as well as the transcription of our genes automatically leading to huge changing epigenetics and some patterning in behavior.
So the environment is important. And, Rollin, you’re right. As you said, it’s important to understand that when we say “environment,” we may also think about our mind, our consciousness, the possibility to right our coherent state and change the environment and the way the environment may affect this epigenetics, the beginning structure and function.
