Our biology is no longer destiny. Our genes respond to everything we do, according to the revolutionary new science of epigenetics. Our genes can actually turn on and off based on what we eat and think, how we handle stress, or the toxicity of our environment. Managing these biochemical effects on our genome will be a new key to radiant wellness and healthy longevity. According to Dr. Kenneth R. Pelletier, this epigenetic revolution opens the door to more personalized medicine. Genetic biomarkers will help us identify which lifestyle changes can optimize a given individual’s health and guide their daily health practices. Pelletier has appeared on ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC, and the BBC to discuss his research. Bestselling author Pelletier is a clinical professor of medicine at the UCSF School of Medicine and former clinical professor of medicine at the Stanford School of Medicine. Learn more.
