    Radio Show: Gut Smart Gene Smart Diet: An Interview with Donna Gates

    in Health

Proponents of a variety of diet "religions" purport to have the perfect diet for all of human kind. Studies contradict themselves, and hot-under-the-collar debates separate diet factions. Confusion and overwhelm abounds, and, for many, it results in just giving up and eating what tastes good.


    But what if instead of following a particular diet religion, you could based on factors in your genetics, and make smart food choices based on what's best for your unique biochemistry?

    The alphabet soup of genes that impact digestion and food effects - NERF-2, FUT, VDR, NAT, TAS1r3, MTHFR and much more
    Genes that effect whether you do well or poorly with saturated fats, and when it's most important to eat a plant-based diet based on genetics
