A happy new year and some happy lifestyle-changing new year's resolutions! This week nutritional geneticist, Maia Elliot, shares her insights into how our environment and our lifestyle choices such as sleep, diet, and exercise, can change the way our genes behave, sometimes permanently. From how your mother's diet affects you, to a vitamin linked with Alzheimer's, and a debate around the shift towards personalised medicine, we also discover how Maia felt having her own genome sequenced and her top tips for justifying all the naughty food she wants to eat too.
