Your health is shaped by the interaction that takes place between the food you eat, the microbes that colonize your body, and the genes inside your human cells. Of these things, food and microbes are the ones you have the most control over. You can’t physically change the structure of your own genome, at least not without meddling with things you probably should leave alone; however, you can change your diet and microbiome, and thereby alter how your genes express themselves.
