This book is a must read for anyone interested in how genetics work in terms of your health and long term wellbeing. Dr Hassed explains that even though you may have inherited genes that predispose you to various ailments your parents or grandparents may have suffered from, your lifestyle choices determine in greater measure whether or not you manifest those diseases during your lifespan or not. Dr Hassed recommends an eating, mindfulness and exercise plan to "play" your genetic hand wisely and not activate those unwanted genes. Your parents load the gun with your genes, but you fire the bullet with your lifestyle choices!!
