New York best-selling author Chris Kresser, M.S., L.Ac and integrative medicine physician Babak Kanani, M.D. will discuss how your genes account for less than 15% of the risk for chronic disease and how our genome, environment and lifestyle can determine our health. At one time scientists believed our DNA held the key to preventing and reversing disease. But we now know that our environment—not our genes—is the primary driver of health and longevity.
What we eat, how we move, and what we think affects the health of our bodies and our minds. This basic idea has been accepted for years by societies throughout the world and modern medicine has confirmed it. But how do choices such as diet, exposure to toxins, or trauma contribute to the expression of our genes? Learn about the connection between the environment, our thoughts, and gene expression in this rapidly changing area of research.
