And that’s just the beginning.
As Dr. Anthony Jay, a best-selling author and lead researcher for the Mayo Clinic, shares in this episode, your genes can also clue you into a number of different health issues.
They can tell you how your lifestyle can affect your health, what your risk factors are for chronic diseases, the best exercises to perform, and how you handle vitamins and hormonal issues, among other things.
Dr. Jay also shows how modifying certain things can change the way your genes are affected and he shares all of this in this podcast episode.
