High Homocysteine Levels

Hello all,

I just finished my homocysteiene page! I learned about this issue the hard way, when my father was diagnosed with lung cancer.

It seems that there is a gene called MTHFR which results in undermethylation of the amino acid cysteine. This causes homocysteiene to build up in the body and is a promoter of heart disease and cancer.

The way to address this problem is with a nutritional supplement called a "methyl donor."
