It's not all genetics, it's also your choices

Remember, in all those moments when you want to rationalize away your health issues, that: you are in power of your body and not beholden to genetic determinism. As Deepak Chopra explains, "You are in a constant conversation with every cell in your body..."

Furthermore, he insists: "This post is too short for me to detail how such a revolutionary change occurred in genetic thinking, so I will only point to the findings of Dr. Dean Ornish, the country's most respected advocate for heart prevention, which indicate that improving your diet, exercise and stress levels leads to improved genetic output from 400 to 500 genes."

In conclusion, this means that, "you can be the controller of your body's trillions of cells, and the control switch lies in consciousness."
