The Gene Makeover
The 21st Century Anti-Aging Breakthrough
Everyone is familiar with episodes of TV shows like CSI and Law & Order in which an individual is identified by their DNA. DNA is the chemical inside the nucleus of all cells that carries the genetic instructions that make each individual unique. Aging occurs in DNA because newly forming cells take their identity from their predecessors in a process similar to photocopying. Over time, environmental pollution, dietary and lifestyle factors, and genetic inheritance erode the cellular infrastructure. As the quality of new cells degrades, the molecules, nutrients, and chemicals that circulate in and among the cells become deficient. This causes a breakdown in functions throughout the body and promotes aging. Thanks to the latest advances in genetic science, one no longer has to be a victim of genetic inheritance. Dr. Giampapa and other researchers have developed a new concept of health called personal genetic health (PGH). This pioneering program is based on determining what’s needed to promote each individual’s health and longevity. By identifying the functioning of five key groups of health-control genes and then influencing their favorable expression through nutrition and lifestyle programs, people can lead longer, disease-free lives. This book shows readers how they can personally direct and monitor their own health and become proactive in optimizing their quality of life.
