Kenneth R. Pelletier, MD, PhD, is professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, Medical Center. He is author of Longevity, Mind As Healer - Mind As Slayer, Toward a Science of Consciousness, Sound Mind - Sound Body, The Best Alternative Medicine, Healthy People in Unhealthy Places, and Change Your Genes - Change Your Life.
Here he describes progress in the emerging new scientific field of epigenetics. He points out that the manner in which genes express themselves is determined by diet, exercise, and mental state, in addition to other biochemical factors. Alterations to epigenetic markers can be passed on to one's descendants -- in effect, supporting the once discredited notion of Lamarckian genetics. We are at the brink of a new era of personalized medicine.
New Thinking Allowed host, Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD, is author of The Roots of Consciousness, Psi Development Systems, and The PK Man. Between 1986 and 2002 he hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series. He is the recipient of the only doctoral diploma in "parapsychology" ever awarded by an accredited university (University of California, Berkeley, 1980).
