It was not long ago that scientists thought - if we knew our personal genetics, we would be able to predict our future health. Interestingly, there have been several science fiction movies based on this premise. We now know that although genetic information can influence our health, other factors influence it as well. Stress, environmental factors, where we have lived, toxins, social interactions and other factors all influence our health.
It is important to know and understand our unique genetic information. Decisions about choosing to live a healthy lifestyle, consuming needed nutrients and receiving proper prescriptions are motivated by understanding genetic information.
Genetics can be used to improve health, quality of life and longevity!
