The Secret to Longer, Healthier Lives…
The Epigenetics Revolution uncovers new findings – that simple choices we make around our environment and lifestyle can turn genetic markers “on and off” that cause disease, allowing us to live longer, healthier lives.
Research has shown that the dramatic rise in obesity, heart disease, diabetes and Alzheimer’s all have epigenetic mechanisms at play. Many epigenetic changes are actually passed to future generations: your grandmother’s dietary deficits may have caused your diabetes. Your father’s smoking may have turned on your marker for obesity or ADHD. Even three generations later, descendants of Holocaust survivors are still suffering stress disorders.
The Idea that “Genes Are Our Fate” is Dead
The idea that “our genes are our fate” is dead. Exciting new discoveries in the field of epigenetics have proven that our lifestyle and environment can alter the genes that control our health and wellbeing. Simple things like where we live, what we eat, pollution, stress and exercise all impact which genes are silenced and expressed throughout our lives.
Individually Tailored Healthcare
This one-hour documentary uncovers the latest findings in the game-changing field of epigenetics. We meet the world’s top epigenetic experts, uncover the latest research into how epigenetics can be used to treat some of society’s most dire health crises such as cancer, heart disease, obesity and dementia.
We’ll find out how epigenetics is revolutionizing how we view life and how it has led to a major shift in the healthcare industry as medical care becomes individually tailored relative to each person’s epigenetic factors. We’ll meet the mastermind behind revolutionary new drugs that turn on and off genetic markers to disease.
