Quote of the Day:
Most of us think of our DNA as sort of locked in our body, waiting to be passed on to our children, but in fact your DNA at every moment is interacting with your environment, interacting with every bite of food you take, interacting with your thoughts, your feelings, and various things, so when you take a bite of food, literally, the information — beyond the calories in the food — goes right into your cells, into your DNA, and switches on genes, or turns off genes based on what information is in that food.
