NOTE FROM TED: Please do not look to this talk for medical advice. We’ve flagged this talk, which was filmed at a TEDx event, because it appears to fall outside TEDx’s curatorial guidelines. The speaker makes claims about the phenotypic representation of health that are not supported by legitimate scientific evidence as well as assertions about epigenetics that oversimplify the current understanding of how lifestyle choices affect gene regulation and long-term health. TEDx events are independently organized by volunteers. The guidelines we give TEDx organizers are described in more detail here: http://storage.ted.com/tedx/manuals/tedx_content_guidelines.pdf
What if you could control the fate of your future health? What if you could alter the hard wiring of your genetic expression with your behavior and surroundings? Matt Reimann shows us the exciting new field of epigenetics and how it will change your stars.
