Everyone has a different opinion as to how children gain knowledge. Is it environment or genetics? Do you believe that children's morals and values are shaped by specific upbringing or mentally and psychologically ingrained no matter the environment?
How much of our children's basic temperament, their mental health, their intelligence, their learning disabilities, and all the things that make them who they are comes from their genes and how much from their environment. What can we learn about genetics vs. environment from the ongoing twin studies, including the study of twins separated at birth? Host Dawn Davenport, Executive Director of Creating a Family, the national infertility & adoption education and support organization, interviews three leading twin researchers: Dr. Matt McGue, Professor of Psychology at University of Minnesota, a behavioral and quantitative geneticist, Co-Director of Minnesota Twin Family Study and the Sibling Interaction and Behavior Study and Research on Adoption and adoptive dad; and Dr. Nancy Segal, Professor of Psychology, Director of the Twin Studies Center at California State University, Fullerton and author of Indivisible by Two: Lives of Extraordinary Twins and Entwined Lives: Twins and What They Tell Us About Human Behavior.

In 1991 we started had ImplantableMedicalDevices; PaceMakers and defibrillators. Creations that supplement the heart by artificial means. Soon after that, we developed forms of prosthetics that gave way to artificial limbs. Bionics became the next step in this invasive technological growth. Allowing various versions of body parts to be made that would, yet again, supplement the human body. Mind-to-body microchips that create a response from neurons to receivers. Recently, an operation was carried where they transplanted not only the head of a monkey, but also the head of a man onto a new body. These are things we're capable today. Who's to say we're not capable of creating a synthetic body, compatible with an exterior natural form? These are marvelous technologies nonetheless, but they enhance the 'Human Condition' and right now our whole planet is in a turmoil. What happens when requirements of Life-Extension technologies are the norm for service? An immortal Frankenstein like arm, patched together by various technologies to sustain what we call 'life'.For now, our natural bodies can handle the Pre-Human world; This is Earth 1, the original design. What's happening now, with the pollution of our air, the toxification of our food and the modification of our genetics, is that we are being aggressively converted. As radical as the notion sounds, explain animals growing extra appendages after eating GMO food after a two year process, or children being irradiated and malformed after a town is shot up with Uranium? These are lasting effects on our planet that won't end in our life time. These are artificial evolutions that require synthetic solutions, and because of this we are evolving. And if we're not being resuscitated by AutomaticInternalDefibrillators. We are being soft killed by these man-made poisons, and their solutions are more chemicals with the involvement of technology.

Imagine being told that your child has a genetic disease or abnormality and there is no possibility of a normal life, what would you do? Go along with the expected course as written in the medical journals or look for alternatives to give him the best quality of life? As your host for many years-I KNOW what you will do!
On Monday , May 18, 2015 at 8pm eastern, we have the pleasure of interviewing Melissa who is the mother of Max who was diagnosed with the chromosomal disorder known as PTLS (Potocki-Lupski Syndrome). The expected features of the syndrome include mental retardation, autism spectrum disorder, infantile hypotonia, sleep apnea, structural cardiovascular anomalies, cognitive deficits, abnormal social behaviors, learning disabilities, ADD, OCD, short stature and failure to thrive.
Max's mom, through diligent research, has improved Max's condition beyond all expectations.. This is a heartwarming story but carries a very heavy message. Different from at the genetic polymorphisms, children with chromosomal abnormalities are not expected to thrive or do well. Please join us and listen to how Melissa overcame her fears, challenge the medical establishment's expectations and gave Max fighting chance for normal living. The story will surprise you, warm your heart and (I hope) spur you to action for these children were not being given the proper opportunity to live.
Because of the time difference (the family lives in the southern hemisphere) I recorded the interview and will play it during our regular show on 5/18/15 at 8 PM Eastern time.
See you then Dr. Jess :-)

LaKeisha Smith is an activist for human rights and for breast cancer awareness. She is the proud parent of four children and a new grandbaby.Its being a mother that has forced LaKeisha to step forward on educating more vigorously on health and genetics such as the BRCA1 gene she carries.Her stock does not fall from a tree unripe as Keishas' mother Michelle Smith has been a leader in the community within the realm of gentle teaching with JARC Inc. for all of Lakeishas' life. LaKeisha wears many hats but takes none as seriously or works with as much passion as she does at being the BEST parent she can offer to her children.
LaKeisha made a decision years ago to work at making her community and issues she stumbled over not as difficult for others. She has worked with teen pregnancy groups such as Lula Belle Stewart Services, and taught sexual responsibility at St. Johns Church on Oakland Ave in Detroit with Pastor Bertha Carter. LaKeisha also saw a need for individuals who re enter society from prison to have work so she aided in the discipline of employment with MPRI - Creating Safer Neighborhoods and Better Citizens via Insight Teleservices. "All these things are needed in rebuilding and healing the family structure within the community, but you must teach others how to heal themselves and how to build a positive self esteem first" says Keisha.
