"Your genes may load the gun, but your lifestyle pulls the trigger."


"We’ve grown accustomed to pointing at genetics as the primary insight for which diseases you're likely to contract over your lifetime. Yet it's your habits - especially what you eat - that establish whether those genes are expressed and the illness flares up or those harmful genes remain dormant. This means the food you choose to place on your plate has more control over your health than some predetermined destiny. In other words, your genes may load the gun, but your lifestyle pulls the trigger." - Ray Cronise, scientist and author
