Bland suggests we take control of our genes, which isn't a bad idea. In Bland's terms, we need to learn to 'express' the genes for health. The genes that worked hard in youth can be encouraged to express themselves, again. While this is a nice slogan, its meaning is very vague. What isn't going to 'express' some gene? What is key step in a gene's expression? What causes a bad gene to be expressed? How does one deal with a race between two genes seeking expression?
The pragmatist wants some process for quickly assessing what a specific food or supplement will do for their metabolism. Everyone has a somewhat different metabolism and somewhat different set of foods which are easy to digest. Most of the people reading 'nutrition' books are interested primarily because they see their digestive system as unique and special. Thus, it seems logical to look for advice that goes past 'population wide' recommendations. Towards these ends, Bland is vague. For example, at one point Bland advises the reader to stop eating tomatoes for a few days. This test will determine if tomatoes cause an unpleasant gene to be expressed, one that causes gastro-intestinal distress. Most people would have run this simple test long before they knew anything about genetics. At other times, Bland simply quotes the standard 'population wide' recommendation.
In my view, the suggestions don't really rise above 'eat the right fruits and vegetables and you will feel better.'
