Meet the Author

Janine Schott was born, raised and educated in Adelaide, South Australia. Throughout her diverse career she has worked all around Australia in the Information Technology and Education industries.


For 30 years, Janine was frustratingly plump. A serial monogamous dieter, Janine tried diet after diet, each with the same disappointing result. In 2001, a lengthy juggle of dieting and many minor ailments culminated in a battle with a persistent migraine (that lasted for weeks). Finding a solution to this migraine sparked a journey of unimaginable discovery which became the foundation of this book.


Obesity now rates in Australia as an epidemic. Some experts believe Australia is the fattest nation. Preventative medicine is Janine’s passion. The illnesses she repeatedly experienced are commonly treated individually by doctors. It is Janine’s aim to equip doctors with a simple interpretation of research on the effects of diet on people from the pre-agriculture age right through to the present. She knows that redefining “healthful foods” is a monumental challenge and is dedicated to this important cause as it will save lives. No drugs, no operations, no expensive programs ... just good old-fashioned truly nutritious foods.


Janine is also teaming up with a number of elderly Australians to document their lives, passions or experiences and publish their stories.


Janine has settled in Brisbane, Australia, and is devoted wife to Peter and mother to two young cherished boys.

    The author is only vaguely familiar with the genetic terms and concepts she tries to use. Threads of thought and argument are broken at best. Not worth reading. Appears to be a clumsy marketing pitch to sell her point of view and book.

    An interesting quick read

    This chapter is essentially a quick summary of the epigenetics discussed in an entry level biology course: Perfect for anyone new to the concept but lacking in any real depth. There are some great illustrations and analogies. Quick, interesting read!
