While DNA can provide us with clues to our past and what could potentially happen with our health, we can still control much of our destiny through our day to day lifestyle decisions. For example, through genetic testing, you may discover that you have a higher propensity for insulin resistance. However, this does not necessarily mean that you will develop diabetes. Instead, these genetic insights can empower you to make better choices regarding your health. In today's world, it is easy to leverage wearable health devices and blood testing in order to shift you from a reactive, to a proactive mentality when it comes to your personal health. In our podcast this week, Julian Hayes II shares his insights into technology and genetics.
