The Genetic Code & Proteins

All fresh produce, fruits and herbs, come with their proportional elements, proteins, fats, carbohydrates, minerals , vitamins, others traces of gases like oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen, all in organic form. Naturally balanced.

2.Proteins are large, complex molecules made up of long chains of submits called amino acids. There are twenty(20) different kinds of amino acids.

3.Each amino acid is encoded through triplets of nucleotides called codons (genetic code).

4.Out of the four(4) nucleotides sixty-four(64) different codons can be built.

5.Sixty-one(61) of them encode twenty(20) amino acids. Three codons (TAA, TAG and TGA) cause protein transcription to cease. These are known as stop codons. T=Thymine; A=Adenine; G= Guamine.

6.Since every triplet encodes an amino acid or a stop codon, many pairs of codons, that differ only in the third position base, code for the same amino acid.

7.A shift of one letter (T,A,or G)in reading the same nucleic acid sequence results in a very different amino acid sequence.

8.The phase of codon reading is called the reading frame. There are three(3) different frames in one direction and three(3) more reading frames on the complementary strand.

Low Fat, High Protein with High Calcium (Pasteurized and Homogenized) 'Fresh' Milk is never suitable for longevity health programme. Pasteurization is a process involved high heat treatment, and during this heat treatment those fatty acids in fresh milk will turn to trans-fat. So, even with the package advertisement label "trans-fat free", it is not really trans-fat free milk as the dairy industry claimed.
