The focus on this book is to bring the latest research on how to create from a person's genetic template the best health outcomes as they age using personalized nutrition and lifestyle tailoring. The book is science-based from both the clinical research experiences of the author in the Functional Medicine Research Center and from the hundreds of scientific studies from other researchers cited in the extensive bibliography. This is a "how to" book as much as a description of when, why and where medicine will be changing to become "personalized medicine" in the 21st century.

Large portions of the text are repetitive. The term 'Genetic Nutritioneering' is repeated a few time on every page. The material on genetics is highly simplified, and really has no impact on the nutritional advice.

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.'

Too often health books fail to deliver anything other than conjecture and unsubstantiated claims. This is one book on my health that made sense and gave me the tools to make rationale decisions about my health future. I liked the way the book took complicated scientific issues and made them accessible to me years before my doctor would understand them. I recommend this book for anyone wanting the latest in health research that can be applied to their own lives.

This book is a must read for people looking to achieve their optimal genetic potential healthwise. Dr Bland explains clearly how our genes express the messages and affect the cellular level functioning according to the environment they are in. Under optimal environment, the gene message translation and post-translation effects lead to highly functional body, mind. The author explains how nutritioneering can be used to turn on helpful genetic messages and turn off bad genetic messages. This book is definitely a good read for anyone wanting to understand how optimal body, mind can be achieved through nutritioneering.

this book is simply the best on the subject, and it shows how proper nutrition with suplements can control genetic diseases.in the past ,the world of medicine was sure that there is nothing to do with genetic-diseases,but no more!.this book explains these mecanisms in a realy wonderful way.you will have a better understanding on genetics wether you are an unhealthy person or a therapist of any kind(especialy natural-healer).we are not changing our genes,we are only give them a better nutrition in order to make them express themselves in the best healthy way.this book is highly recommanded!.

As a Nutritional Science Masters Student, it was refreshing to read such a interesting book on nutrition and it's potential to influence genetics. It was a great mix of science and everyday language - anyone would understand this and learn! I really recommend this book. It's not a textbook for any students out there, but summarises the concepts and brings together many view points, forcing you to think wider than perhaps what we assume we know about nutrition and it's links to chronic disease.
