This must see video discusses the fact that we are not imprisoned by our genes. Most diseases we have are not genetic based but epigenetic. Science is finding that the so-called cancer gene does NOT predispose you to cancer. If you don’t have the gene, it doesn’t mean you can’t get cancer. Diseases come from the environment, diet, stress and thinking through our system of epigenetics. Our ideas that criminals and violent individuals should be punished and lock away doesn’t solve the problem. The real problem is in our society but no one wants to look at that or even admit it exists. It is in fact our social, economic and political forces that shape who we are. Some of us will turn violent under these forces. This is a video everyone should watch and understand.
