Reviews of Super Genes - Harnessing the Vast Potential of Your Genome for Optimum Health and Well-Being:
In "Super Genes," Drs. Deepak Chopra and Rudolph Tanzi illustrate the interplay of nature and nurture using cutting edge genetic science and argue persuasively that adapting one s lifestyle can maximize the potential to transcend the inherited susceptibilities handed down to us from our parents." James Gusella, Ph.D., Director, Center for Human Genetic Research Harvard Medical School
Once thought to be the domain of genes, the control of health and behavior is now dynamically linked to the environment, and more importantly, "our perception of the environment." "Super Genes," by Deepak Chopra and Rudy Tanzi, isa paradigm-shattering synthesis of epigenetic science that offers an easy-to-understand explanation ofthe mechanismsby which consciousness and environment control our genetic activity. Drs. Chopra and Tanzi s""contribution is a valuable resource that empowers us tobecome the masters of our fate rather than the victims of our heredity. Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D., Epigenetic scientist and bestselling author of"The Biology of Belief," "Spontaneous Evolution"and"The Honeymoon Effect
"The concept that biology is destiny is one of the most pathological and toxic exaggerations to emerge during the entire scientific era. This hard-core materialistic view has been a kind of psychological enslavement that has pushed many people into nihilism and despair. In"Super Genes, "Drs. Deepak Chopra and Rudolph E. Tanzi discuss new evidence that our genes are not our masters, but they respond in large measure to our choices and behaviors. The resulting view honors not just the body but mind and spirit as well a vision that is as bright and hopeful as the old view was morbid and depressing. "Super Genes"is an important book. It will empower anyone who reads it, because it expands our view of what it means to be human." Larry Dossey, MD, author of "One Mind: How Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why It Matters
We used to think everything about us was either our genetics or our environment. But in "Super Genes," Deepak Chopra and Rudi Tanzi adeptly teach us that it s all about both how tightly they are intertwined. And what we can do about it. Eric Topol, MD, author "The Patient Will See You Now," Professor of Genomics, The Scripps Research Institute
