ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  Judith Finlayson is a Bestselling Author who has written Books on a variety of subjects, from personal well-being and women's history to food and nutrition.  A former National Newspaper Columnist for The Globe and Mail, Magazine Journalist and Board Member of various organizations focusing on legal, medical and women's issues, she is also the Author of over a dozen cookbooks.  Judith lives in Toronto, Canada.  Foreword and scientific review by Dr. Kent Thornburg, Professor of Medicine and Director of the Center for Developmental Health at the Knight Cardiovascular Institute, and Director of the Bob and Charlee Moore Institute for Nutrition and Wellness at Oregon Health and Science University in Portland, Oregon.

ABOUT THE NEW BOOK:  You Are What Your Grandparents Ate takes conventional wisdom about the origins of chronic disease and turns it upside down.  Rooted in the work of the late epidemiologist Dr. David Barker, it highlights the exciting research showing that heredity involves much more than the genes your parents passed on to you.  Thanks to the relatively new science of epigenetics, we now know that the experiences of previous generations may show up in your health and well-being.

Many of the risks for chronic diseases, including obesity, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and dementia, can be traced back to your first 1,000 days of existence, from the moment you were conceived.  The roots of these vulnerabilities may extend back even further, to experiences your parents and grandparents had, and perhaps even beyond.

Similarly, what happens to you will affect your children and grandchildren.  That's why it's so important to make good dietary choices, get a suitable amount of exercise and be cautious about exposure to toxins.  Positive lifestyle changes have been shown to spark epigenetic adjustments that can lead to better health, not only for yourself, your offspring and their children, but also for generations to come.
