Overview

It's been called a "new paradigm" and "the medicine of the future." At the same time, it is so profoundly changing our understanding of health and healing, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has poured $190 million into it. What's the brouhaha about? The emerging new science of epigenetics, which reveals the foods you eat switch genes on or off that can lead either to wellness or illness. But this "medicine of the future" does even more, for it provides a crystal ball not only into your potential health, but also that of your children, even unborn generations. Be assured: the age of nutritional epigenetics has arrived. Pottenger's Prophecy: How Food Resets Genes for Wellness or Illness reveals the foods that launch your genes on a path toward illness, as well as the diet that can activate "health" genes-often instantly-that promote a longer, healthier life. Regardless of your current health status, Pottenger's Prophecy is the source for anyone who wants to eat to reset genes-NOW-for health, healing, and longevity. Read it and discover the food and nutrition secrets you and your offspring need to live up to your epigenetic health potential...for life. More than 425 references.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In the 1930s, Dr. Francis M. Pottenger Jr. discovered that mother cats fed a poor diet passed their health problems on to their kittens over three generations. Modern medicine, with its new knowledge of genetics, has found that this also applies to humans. Epigenetics, the study of the relationship between the environment and genes, is showing how lifestyle influences health. Nutritional therapists and researchers Graham, Deborah Kesten, and Larry Scherwitz explain this to readers and make recommendations for healthy living—eating fresh, natural, organic foods that are minimally processed; consuming the correct proportion of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats; using sustainably raised plant and animal foods and wild-caught fish; drinking clean water; and storing and preparing foods in ways that preserve nutrients. They also recommend mindful food preparation and eating. A bibliography of current scientific literature and websites offers the evidence for their theories. VERDICT Although there's nothing particularly new here, this book offers sound advice for healthy eating. Recommended for public and consumer health libraries and interested readers.—Barbara M. Bibel, Oakland P.L.
