Food is Not Simply the Sum of its Parts

June 7, 2019

Many people focus on the nutritional content of their food when choosing what to eat. However, only focusing on the nutritional content of food is short sighted. We don’t process all of the elements of food into energy through simple carbohydrates, proteins (amino acids, peptides), and fat. Food transmits valuable instructional information to our body, prompting it into specific action.

Food is nutrition, instructions, addiction, and emotion.

Our food choices today impact the genes of children in the next generation. Nearly 8% of our genes are affected by environmental edits that stick with us for life. These edits can be transmitted to future generations.
