Michael Covel talks with Sharon Moalem, a physician and author. Moalem’s previous book, “Survival Of The Sickest”, was a New York Times bestseller. His newest book is called “Inheritance”. Covel and Moalem discuss Rafael Nadal as an example of digging deep in genetics; how our bodies are constantly in a state of deconstruction and reconstruction; how DNA is under constant modification; genetic personalized medicine; "Jeff the chef" and an example of specific dietary needs; dysmorphology and analyzing the hands, feet, and face of an individual; Gregor Mendel and his pea experiments in genetics; how your behavior can dictate your genetic destiny; the future of personalized genetic medicine; critics and misunderstandings of genetics; and vitamins on an individual basis. Science in life, science in trading, both excite me. Moalem pulls back the curtain on where healthcare is headed. Will it get there in our lifetimes? Wait and see is all we can do.
