I highly recommend this book. One of the author's, Gray Graham, was a speaker at a conference I was at. I was on the edge of my seat listening to his fascinating presentation. The main idea of this book is to expand on the studies done by Francis Pottenger Jr, who used cats as his focus of diet with relationship to how at affects/effects generations. We learn how food can resent our genes for health and wellness (the title)
From Wikipedia about Pottenger: "One particular question that Pottenger addressed in his study had to do with the nutritive value of heat-labile elements -- nutrients destroyed by heat and available only in raw foods. He applied the principles of nutrition and endocrinology early in his practice. Dr. Pottenger was a pioneer in using crude extracts of adrenal cortex as supplements to treat allergic states and exhaustion. In his treatment of respiratory diseases such as TB, asthma, allergies and emphysema, he always highlighted proper diet based on the principles discovered by Weston Price. At his hospital, he served liberal amounts of liver, butter, cream and eggs to convalescing patients."

The author's explain what epigenetic's is and how it affects us now and our future generations. For example, the "eggs" for reproduction my daughter has in her body right now, will possibly be my grandchildren. She inherited certain health traits from me (good or bad) and her foods are affecting future generations (good or bad) but whole, nutrient dense, organic, foods, as found in nature are out bodies best defense.

I think this book would be a great addition to anyone's library of real books about health and wellness, without the bias of big business clouding the information. I enjoy Gray Graham and I value his opinions. I also recommend this book for individuals who plan on having children or who are parents wanting to understand why our food choices are important to a growing baby.

Epigenetics has been a source of fascination for me for years. Dr Bruce Lipton's workshop got me entranced and now this lovely, well written, very comprehensible book takes it further, into nutrition. Interpreting the world while standing under a Niagra of information, much of which is marketing, becomes impossible. This is a clear beacon of understanding and interpreting information, and empowering ourselves to reshape ourselves. Good job.

With the current poor state of health in the United States, the country which spends the most on medical treatments, we know that we're obviously missing something important when it comes to being and staying well. This research shows why proper nutrition (not that dictated by corporate interests via government) is vitally important for not only our own survival, but that of our future children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. It's amazing and frightening to think that our poor nutritional choices now may damage our grandchildren, but science is showing that to be true. A very interesting and enlightening travel into the world of epigenetics!

I was introduced to this book during a conferance, where I was able to hear the authur speak. After this experience, I wanted to learn more about this importand and fasinating research. The book is well writen and easy the fallow for someone with little knowledge of genetics. Everyone wanting to understand how dramaticly we humans are impacted by our food should read this book!

As many of us once thought that our DNA doomed us, now we know that quite possibly isn't true at all. This book points to how food can affect us and what we can do about it.

This book shows you how your DNA is the roll of the dice that holds your potential, but what you eat switches on and off the genes that affect your health for better or worse. The genes that you switch on and off in your own body, then affect the health of your children and grandchildren, what diseases they will be predisposed to, and even the length of their lives. The book was very interesting, explaining studies and their findings, and also personal stories, so it wasn't just a list of facts, but still logical with plenty of proof. It also shows that there is hope, If your family inherited heart disease, it may just be that the healthy gene has been turned off, and just needs to be switched on by the next choices you make.
