Conventional wisdom has long held that the genetic cards you inherent from your mother and father are the genetic cards    you are stuck with throughout your life, for better or for worse.  Most clinicians continue to believe that you cannot do anything about the risks you inherit from your parents. Like so many long held truths in medicine, it is now increasingly clear that this is not the case.  You are not a prisoner of your DNA.  Your DNA is not your destiny.  Compelling evidence now suggests that your genes are in fact quite malleable throughout life, designed to change expression in response to changes in one’s environment.  So how well do you fit into your genes?
