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 the book The Epigenetics of Diet.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.Dr Kenneth J. O'Brien joins Janine as co-author on The Effects of the Epigenetics of Trauma series of books due for release in 2013.Janine also teams up with a number of elderly Australians to document their lives, passions or experiences to publish their stories.Janine has settled in Brisbane, Australia, and is devoted wife to Peter and mother to two cherished young boys.
