Yoga can reverse DNA changes, reduce risk of cancer 
Yoga has long being touted as the one-stop solution to a healthy body, mind

and soul. This ancient form of physical exercise works on different parts of the body to boost its overall function and well-being. 

Now a new study states that yoga can also affect molecular reactions in the DNA and prevent risks of certain ailments. Mind-body interventions (MBIs) such as meditation, yoga and Tai Chi can help reduce risk of depression and cancer by reversing the molecular reactions in DNA if practised on a daily basis.

When a person is exposed to a stressful event, his sympathetic nervous system (SNS) - the system responsible for the 'fight-or-flight' response - is triggered, in turn increasing production of a molecule called nuclear factor kappa B (NF-kB), which regulates how our genes are expressed, according to a media report.
