Overview

For anyone who has a family history of cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer's, or other common diseases-or for anyone worried about how the aging process is setting the stage for disease later on-this breakthrough book will be a revelation. Renowned nutrition expert Jack Challem has taken the findings of the emerging science of nutrigenomics-which explores the link between nutrition and our own DNA-and translated them into practical eating plans and nutritional supplement recommendations to help people maximize their genetic inheritance, slow the aging process, and reduce the chances of disease. Challem shows how nutrients are essential cofactors for normal DNA function and health, and after describing how food and individual nutrients can help repair flawed or damaged genes, he offers specific diet and supplement plans that target two dozen common or inherited diseases and conditions, including arthritis, birth defects, diabetes, fatigue, gluten intolerance, and obesity. Complete with meal plans, delicious low-carb recipes, and recommended nutritional supplements (including dosage guidelines), Feed Your Genes Right is an essential disease-prevention resource that is sure to find a large audience.
