The CYP1B1 gene provides instructions for producing an enzyme that is a member of the cytochrome P450 family of enzymes. These enzymes are involved in many processes in the body, such as assisting with reactions that break down drugs and produce certain fats (lipids).
Medium to high impact variations in this gene means that you should reduce exposure to all diet and environmental procarcinogens such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) which are a group of more than 100 different chemicals that are released from burning coal, oil, gasoline, trash, tobacco, wood, or other organic substances such as charcoal-broiled meat. So this means no braais! It's also a good idea to avoid nitrates that can be found in processed foods and meats and smoking of any kind. In addition, attention should be paid to optimising phase 2 detoxification.
