Methylation is a biochemical event that activates changes in the body. Technically, it is the body’s ability to maintain chemical balance by adding or subtracting molecules called methyl groups when it turns one thing into another, like changing adrenaline from noradrenalin, and vice versa (Holford, 2004, p.138). It is crucial to the health of our cells and tissues, and occurs a billion times every second (Holford, 2004, p.138).

Methylation controls both synthesis and repair of DNA (Holford, 2004, p.284). Holford (2004) associates homocysteine with many cancers as homocysteine can reflect any methylation problems, and methylation problems have been shown to be the root cause of these cancers.
