Nutrients and hormones vitally affect each of our lives as they operate the switches on our genes, shaping our lifelong mental and physical health, at no time more powerfully than at conception and in early life. Speed of change, social, nutritional and environmental, is exceeding our evolutionary adaptability. We have to use our brains to remain a healthy race in today’s conditions, to stave off the pandemic of:

  • Obesity – the visible tip of the iceberg – & diabetes

  • cardiovascular disorders

  • mental illness – the most damaging aspect
