I have to make a confession. I have a major sweet tooth. I blame it on my parents (cause, I can and it’s way easier than taking responsibility for this myself). Now of course this can lead us into the discussion that has been all the rage lately of “Are your genes your destiny?” which is a really fascinating subject area, that we are learning more about every single day. For way too long, many of us (and our doctors) had been blaming a shitty gene pool for all of our ailments and ‘throwing our hands up in the air like we just don’t care’. Ok, those were song lyrics, but it’s way easier to blame our gene pool than to take control of our destiny and realize that there is something we can do about the hand we were dealt, if we want to.
