Change Your Genes, Change Your Life: Creating Optimal Health with the New Science of Epigenetics

Regrets; this event is canceled.

Our biology is no longer destiny. Our genes respond to everything we do, according to the revolutionary new science of epigenetics. What we eat and think, how we handle daily stress, and the toxicity of our immediate environment all create an internal biochemistry that can actually turn genes on or off. Managing these biochemical effects on our genome could be a new key to radiant wellness and healthy longevity.

According to Dr. Ken Pelletier, this epigenetic revolution opens the door to personalized medicine. Genetic biomarkers may become the standard reference for measuring which lifestyle changes are required to optimize a given individual's health and guide their daily health practices. Bestselling author Pelletier is a clinical professor of medicine at the UCSF School of Medicine and formerly clinical professor at Stanford School of Medicine.  He has appeared on ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC, and the BBC to discuss this research.
