Overview
EDITOR'S NOTE FOR THE AUTHOR Understanding Genomics NOVEMBER 2021 "UNDERSTANDING GENOMICS; How Nutrition, Supplements, and Lifestyle Can Help You Unlock Your Genetic Superpowers", by Marios Michael, is a fascinating book that gives the clearest explanation of genomics that I have ever encountered. Firstly, it relates how the increasing knowledge in genomics is affecting healthcare by allowing the focus to be on specific genes that affect a particular condition. Even if a "bad" gene is there, its expression can often be discouraged by the use of supplements as well as fasting and a healthier lifestyle. It used to be that we had to guess what supplements to take or what types of diets we should follow, but now we can know if we have genes that can cause, or are causing, specific problems and can meet the problems head on. We can target nutrition, supplements, and lifestyle to "unlock our genetic superpowers," as the author says.

We can target nutrition, supplements, and lifestyle to "unlock our genetic superpowers," as the author says. The book is written in a clear, direct, and accessible style, which is a big help to the reader when trying to grasp an essentially difficult topic. The author's fascination with his field and the incredible speed with which it is evolving as new scientific discoveries are made, gives the book a quality that draws the reader into it and keeps him or her there. The book imparts knowledge, hope, and enthusiasm. A basic breakdown of this book is as follows: The 1st part of the book breaks down the science of genomics with the most up to date scientific information in a user-friendly language. The 2nd part of the book provides information on how epigenetics, environment, exercise, nutrition, food and supplements can help you achieve your optimum health. Exposome or how your genes interact with your environment and prevention based on your genome and/or how to manage health conditions from a genomics perspective is also discussed in great detail. The 3rd part of the book talks about the most common mutations in humans and how to manage them with genomics. It also discusses how to achieve longevity, living to 100 and anti-aging recommendations based on your genome. The last chapter provides information about the future of Genomics and the possibility of bringing back extinct animals and perhaps the dead!
