Dr. Marchese shares if there is a test to determine a woman's risk for cancer.
Well, in terms of environmental testing, what I like to do is find out what levels of heavy metals, solvents, pesticides, parabens, and phthalates are actually stored in a person’s body, and that can be done through blood test or through urine test.
However, not everybody that’s exposed to toxins stores the toxins in their body. That has to do with genetic testing, and the other blood test that I like to do is actually testing if the liver has the ability to break down and clear these toxins, and that’s called genomic testing.
It’s really individualized medicine because I can determine if a person was born with a genetic defect in the enzyme pathways of their liver, and these pathways are supposed to be breaking down these toxins, and if you have these genetic problems, then they might not function the way that they should.
