This review is from: Epigenetics: The Death of the Genetic Theory of Disease Transmission (Paperback)
The book is not an explanation of epi-genetics per se. The author posits that all birth defects and most diseases are caused by deficiency in nutrient intake or absorption. His messianic message clashes predictably with mainstream medicine. However his successes in preventing and treating diseases previously thought as genetic are convincing. The stunning fact that laboratory monkeys are fed a diet containing about ten times the trace nutrients recommended for humans, should wake everyone up and take notice. Wallach has set in motion an epic revolution, which will probably take many decades to be implemented and understood by most. Unfortunately Wallach often presents hypothesis as fact which makes him look like just another nutrient prophet. But like they say in China: Mao may have been right only 70%, but he was a great leader.
