Sample text

Mutations were, for many decades, presumed to be the root cause of everything from knock-knees to short stature to high blood pressure and depression. This model of inheritance is the reason doctors tell people with family histories of cancer, diabetes, and so on that they’ve inherited genetic time bombs ready to go off at any moment. It’s also the reason we call the genetic lottery a lottery. The underlying principle is that we have little or no control. But epigenetics has identified a ghost in the machine, giving us a different vision of Mother Nature’s most fantastic molecule.

Photographs taken two hundred years later, in the 1800s, capture the Native American’s imposing visage and broad, balanced bone structure. Presenting a people’s stamina and strength as evidence of a healthy diet seemed reasonable, and it rang true with my own clinical experience in Hawaii: The healthiest family members are, in many cases, the oldest, raised on foods vastly different from those being fed to their great grand children. I began to doubt my presumption that today’s definition of a healthy diet was nutritionally superior to diets of years past.

In other words, they used diet to engineer their bodies. Most of us probably have something we’d want to change about the way we look, or about our health. What if you could use food to change your body at the genetic level? Think about it: What if you could re-engineer your genes to your liking? Want to be like Mike? How about Tiger Woods? Halle Berry? George Clooney? Or maybe you want to change your genes so that you can still be you, only better. Just a modest upgrade—a sexier body, better health, greater athleticism, and a better attitude.
