Summary
You are what you eat, but science suggests you're also what your grandmother ate. This video clip features interviews with medical experts who say that our ancestors pass down more than just their genes. In 2000 the human genome was finally mapped and scientists had cracked our genetic code. But they didn't bargain on discovering a hidden array of switches that can be turned on, or off, not only by what our bodies experience, but also by what our predecessors got up to. See how this new information could shape the development of treatments for many diseases including cancer.
