Subtitled How Food Resets Genes for Wellness or Illness, this book shows the way that our diet can either activate “health” genes or launch us on a path toward illness. This understanding of how our food and lifestyle choices have the ability to trigger the epigenome to wreak havoc was first theorized by Dr. Francis M. Pottenger when doing research into the health effects of diet on cats and their offspring.
Called the “medicine of the future,” epigenetics is a new science that investigates how the foods you eat can switch genes on or off – leading to wellness or illness. It is true, we are what we eat (and what our parents, grandparents and great grandparents ate). And regardless of your current health status, eating to reset genes can have an effect on health, healing and longevity -- instantly.
