If you're a health-focused web surfer, you've probably seen a new acronym floating around the interwebs recently. MTHFR, short for methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase, refers to a gene that produces an important enzyme in the body. This enzyme helps convert the amino acid homocysteine into methionine, an essential amino acid for numerous functions.

Like all genes, MTHFR comes in several variations. Some work better than others, and some don't work at all. Dysfunctioned MTHFR gene could be a contributing factor in a wide variety of illnesses, including vascular disease, neural tube defects, Alzheimer's, dementia, colon cancer, and leukemia, just to name a few. Obviously, this is very concerning, and as a result, genetic testing services, as well as specific websites and coaching services have popped up in response to the MTHFR threat, but is it really a threat? Is MTHFR the new gluten, or is it, like shark attacks and lightning strikes, something that most of us really don't have to worry about?

One outspoken critic of the commercialization of MTHFR treatment is Craig Pickering. Craig is a former world-champion sprinter who currently works as the Head of Sport Science for DNAFit, a company dedicated to providing DNA-based diet and exercise recommendations for both Olympic athletes and everyday folks alike.
