Dr. Yael Joffe joins Dr. Jockers in this new episode to talk about one of the hottest topics today – genetics. Dr. Joffe is a world expert when it comes to genetics. If you want to understand how our genes are impacting our food choices, habits, lifestyles, and even mindsets, she has simple, easy-to-understand facts to help you with the insights you need. She explains how a single letter can make a huge difference in the composition of your genes which then leads to a variance in your choices and how your body reacts differently to certain environmental conditions.

“The spelling changes in our DNA determine how we’re different from each other, how we respond to the food we eat, how we respond to trauma, stress, and everything happening around us.”

-Dr. Yael Joffe
