Description - The Genetics of Health: Understand Your Genes for Better Health by Sharad P. Paul
'An exhilarating journey through the shifting landscape of genetics, health and evolution.' Siddhartha Mukherjee, Pulitzer Prize winner and author of The Gene.
A revolutionary guide to living well.
Dr Sharad Paul is starting a health revolution. It's time to stop relying on drugs to alleviate all ailments and to take charge of our own life wellness. By understanding the evolution of the human species, as well as the effects of migration and changes in food production, we are able to recognise the critical state of health in society and
identify the individual choices we make each day that can lead to personal well-being. Covering everything from how predisposition to allergies and food intolerances can be traced back to our ancestors to even our propensity for procrastination or impulsiveness, The Genetics of Health explores how it always leads back to the expression and suppression of various genes. But knowing the path our species took to this moment in our evolution is just the beginning of reaching true personal health. Knowing your own genetic makeup can help doctors prescribe the right dosage of a drug, or provide preventative medical advice.
Beyond the doctor's office, knowledge of your own DNA and ancestral line can inform your decisions as to diet, stress management, even what kind and how much exercise is best for your body. Dr Paul pinpoints the key genes that make or break your best efforts at good health, and offers you a blueprint on how to live your healthiest self.
