What is MTHFR? Is that a curse word?
Science and medicine are in the early stages of understanding genes and gene mutations and the potential of gene therapy to treat disease.
The MTHFR gene mutations are probably the best known of the gene mutations, but relatively little is truly known about them by most people.
Having one of these gene mutations may increase your risk of developing heart disease, stroke, depression, neurological disorders, birth defects, developmental disorders, and possibly even cancer.
In this article, I will discuss the MTHFR gene mutation, explain how you can be tested for it, and show what it may mean if you are positive for one of its common variants.
