Functional Components


Whereas the Columbus Concept deals with the lifestyle essential components of man's health, TsimTsoum focuses on the lifestyle functional components of human's health. The latter differs from the former components in that they do not contribute to the daily energy intake (D.E.I. ≈ 0) on the one hand and tend to elevate man to human-being on the second hand. They encompass those components that characterize the non-invasive interaction of man's body/mind with his environment through recognition of its evolutionary nature, i.e. heritage and development. Functional components-induced gene expression is of short duration (hours/days) and, therefore, blood lipoproteins (cholesterol) remain ideal markers for tracing the short, medium and long term influences of such non-invasive interactions.
