A few years ago, a patient came in with some unexplained symptoms. She’d been to the hospital twice, and even had a small surgery that didn’t help the problem. Tough as that was, she’d also gotten some bad news on a related genetic test. You can imagine she was pretty scared.
I told her: “Epigenetics is your friend.”
Translated: Your genes are not your destiny. Your choices can protect against, prevent or override the genetic cards in your hand.
