Contrary to conventional wisdom, we are not held in bondage from birth by the double helix. As this book by geneticist Sharon Moulem (Survival of the Sickest) shows, our genes do determine some things, but its encodings are not immutable. He notes, for example, that a change in diet can actually alter genes and slow the aging process; while, on the other hand, a trauma can be passed genetically through generations. With its message of change, Inheritance both illuminates and empowers.
