Can You Change Your Heredity?
Genes, Genetics, Epigenetics and Genomics can sound very exciting but also intimidating. 

What if you could map your genes and circumvent your weak genes to prevent them from "turning on" and learn how to turn the good genes on instead?

Most of what genetics tells us about ourselves is not predictive; rather suggestive.

Genetics provides us with few absolute truths about our destinies, only probabilities about increased risks for disease and increased sensitivities to chemicals in your environment or to the foods we consume.

Listen in as Dr. Richard Francis joins Dr. Susanne to discuss the humane genome project and how mapping your genes can help shape your future.
