Overview

You know how victims and perpetrators are identified by their DNA on TV shows like CSI and Law & Order. Now that same science can help you lead a longer, healthier life. DNA - deoxyribonucleic acid - is the chemical inside your cells that carries the genetic instructions that make you unique. Aging occurs in DNA as cells replicate themselves continually in a process similar to photocopying. As the normal functioning of our cells becomes less efficient over time due to environmental, lifestyle, and hereditary factors, those cells produce less accurate copies, causing malfunctioning throughout the body that results in degenerative diseases and aging.

Thanks to the latest advances in genetic science, you no longer have to be a victim of your genetic inheritance. Dr. Giampapa and other researchers have developed a new concept called Personal Genetic Health (PGH). This pioneering PGH Program is based on determining what's needed to promote each individual's health and longevity. By identifying the activity level of five key groups of health control genes and then influencing their favorable expression with nutraceuticals, supplements, exercise, and lifestyle changes, you can increase your lifespan and decrease your risk of developing certain diseases. By addressing the causes of disease and aging - and actually reversing them - this new anti-aging frontier allows you to control your health and well-being. Now you have the proactive power to optimize the quality of your life.

    Enlightening New Book Offers Important Information for a Healthier Future

    As the baby boomer generation reaches the 'new middle age' we search for new information as assistance in the creation of a more healthy and viable future for us, our parents and our children. The connection between our daily environmental and personal stressors and our overall health is important. Studies have proved that stress has a significant effect on our longevity. As an author of a children's book regarding bullying behavior and frequent speaker regarding the topic of bullying and stress, I am keenly aware of this connection. This book offers a vast understandable quantity of information regarding our predisposition to DNA damage and offers easy to follow steps on how to hold on to or improve our health. A great navigational aid for our journey into the future. Author of: A Bully Grows Up: Erik Meets the Wizard
