This review is from: Outsmart Your Genes: How Understanding Your DNA Will Empower You to Protect Yourself Against Cancer, Alzheimer's, Heart Disease, Obesity, and Many Other Conditions (Hardcover)
Dr Colby's book is really mapping clearly how healthcare will evolve in the next 10-30 years. Although genetics is often an obscure and complicated field, Dr Colby makes it easy to understand and also to link it to how this will impact everybody's life and the healthcare system in general. The book covers most of the current diseases and how genetics will help us prevent them by adapting our lifestyle - it definitely gives hope to everybody, as he explains that lifestyle factors can impact the risks to develop a certain disease (despite your genetic predisposition). Definitely worth reading. I recommend it to anybody who is interested to learn more about themselves, genetics and healthcare in general, anybody who wants to take control of their destiny and outsmart their genes.
