It's Not Just Your Genes! introduces you to the fascinating world of genomics. Genetic technologies are revolutionizing health care, and in order to take full advantage of the advances emerging from this field, you need to get comfortable with its language and concepts. Today we know that rather than viewing our genetic makeup as a hand of cards that have already been dealt, we have the power to use the information encoded in our genes to help us make informed choices that will maximize our genetic potential. Reading our personal genetic "message" is like having access to a treasure map one that can lead us, in excellent health, into a ripe old age! It's Not Just Your Genes! is not a magic bullet. Just reading it will not banish your health issues, make you lose weight, or keep you forever young. Genetic risk is not absolute, and your individual genetic profile, along with how you choose to live, are major determinants of how your risk will play out in the long run. By gathering the information you need to make healthy choices, you have the power to optimize your individual potential. The era of personalized nutrition is upon us - join us on this fascinating journey into a new era and to a better life!
