You may or may not have heard about how genetic information can be used as a guide to improve and maintain your health. Likely you’ve heard of the BRCA gene or newborn testing for inborn errors of metabolism. But each day there are new advances that have come out of the Human Genome Project that directly enlighten us as to how our bodies respond to certain medications, foods, toxins and more. Dr. Julie Reardon explains our genetics are just part of our story. They are not our destiny but we can use the information as a tool to help guide our health. We must be careful to put genetics in the context of our whole health story. When taken incontext, this information can be very helpful! Data and research are emerging every day in this exciting new field. Knowledge is still limited but what we know so far can provide great clues to unlocking our health.
