Why Your Genes Need Traditional Food. A dive on how our diet choices can help us live longer, healthier, more vital lives.
A self-published phenomenon that goes deeper on the impact of diet choices. “Deep Nutrition” examines the nourishment habits that enabled our ancestors to sculpt their anatomy, engineering bodies of extraordinary health and beauty. Examining diets around the world – diets like the Mediterranean, Okinawa (in Japan), and “Blue Zone” (places where people live longer) -, Physician and biochemist Catherine Shanahan identifies the four common nutritional habits that produce strong, healthy and intelligent children, as well as active, vital elders, generation after generation.
They rely on fresh food, fermented and sprouted foods, meat cooked on the bone, and animal internal organs. Combining her research with the latest discoveries in the field of epigenetics and her experience as an elite athlete who used traditional diets to treat her own injuries, the author shows how food directs people’s cellular growth and how the way we all eat and live can alter our DNA to the point of affecting the health of our future children.
