Inheritance: How Our Genes Change Our Lives—and Our Lives Change Our Genes
AbstractDr. Sharon Moalem assures us that by the end of his book, or even by the end of this article, your entire genome, and the life it has helped shape, will never look or feel the same. Conventional wisdom dictates that our genetic destiny is fixed at conception, but Moalem's groundbreaking book shows us that the human genome is far more fluid and fascinating than most doctors and scientists ever imagined—that our genes are more of a shifting tide than a crystal ball. For better or worse, science is discovering that it is possible to accept or reject our inheritance.
