In his early years of scientific training, Dr. Manish Singh rarely studied or worried about nutrition. Overtime, he saw how certain gene expressions can be easily modified not by editing the genes but simply by modulating the on/off switches of genes. Singh found that foods are not different than medicines in that way. If you take the right foods you can control many processes. Furthermore, having grown up in India, Manish Singh knew of the old tradition of using food’s healing properties. Unfortunately, most of us in the modern age ignore the power of proper nutrition completely. This lack of awareness is mostly because we don’t fully understand it. Once you start digging into it, you find how to control some of ailments. Dr. Manish Singh hopes to share the effectiveness of proper nutrition with you!
