Sunday Mail - Body and Soul - - NEWS FLASH -

If you could know your own health fu­ture or that of your off­spring, would you find out? For a fairly small out­lay, you can dis­cover what your DNA holds in store for you – are you at high risk of heart dis­ease, de­men­tia or obe­sity? And this sci­ence of ge­net­ics is evolv­ing at the same time, re­veal­ing more and more about what we can ex­pect in the years ahead. In our story on page 4 we com­pare this rev­o­lu­tion to a sci-fi plot and it makes com­pelling read­ing. Then turn to page 6, for­get all your health pan­ics, and find out how “bathing” in na­ture can boost your over­all well­be­ing and help pre­vent the dis­eases your genes say you’re at risk of. Have a great week.
