9780615228389: Deep Nutrition: Why Your Genes Need Traditional Food

Deep Nutrition illustrates how our ancestors used nourishment to sculpt their anatomy, engineering bodies of extraordinary health and beauty. The length of our limbs, the shape of our eyes, and the proper function of our organs are all gifts of our ancestor's collective culinary wisdom. Citing the foods of traditional cultures from the Ancient Egyptians and the Maasai to the Japanese and the French, the Shanahans identify four food categories all the world's healthiest diets have in common, the Four Pillars of World Cuisine. Using the latest research in physiology and genetics, Dr. Shanahan explains why your family's health depends on eating these foods. In a world of competing nutritional ideologies, Deep Nutrition gives us the full picture, empowering us to take control of our destiny in ways we might never have imagined.

Deep Nutrition is an approved textbook for these health professionals and can be purchased using CEU monies. See the Numedix website for more information.

From the Author:

One of our favorite passages in the book speaks to the importance of our ability to gauge beauty. Contrary to what we typically hear, the fascination for good-looking people is not a new phenomenon created by Hollywood. Nor is it about vanity. Rather, the instinct for beauty reflects a deep-seated, primal survival skill that has enabled us to reliably select the healthiest mates and pass on the healthiest genes to our offspring.

Unfortunately, the introduction of industrial food into our bodies has also impacted our genetic expression and, for reasons described in Chapters Two and Three, this means that optimal growth is now relatively more rare and precious than it was in the past.

Once we better appreciate how wandering from our ancestral nutritional path can affect us so powerfully, we can better appreciate the power of real food to set our bodies back on track.

About the Author:

Cate Shanahan, MD is a leading authority on nutrition. Trained in biochemistry and genetics at Cornell, Dr. Cate has two decades of experience examining the effects of food choices on a person's metabolism, brain health, immune and reproductive systems and skeletal and muscle development. 

While living in Hawaii, she found that older patients tended to be the healthiest in their family. Unlike their descendants, they were raised on traditional foods, typically endowed with strong joints and sturdy bones, and relatively few needed glasses or braces as children. Dr. Cate now helps patients obtain those same kinds of foods in order to repair damaged metabolic pathways and optimize gene expression. 

Luke Shanahan, MFA graduated from University of Iowa where he attended the prestigious Writers' Workshop as an undergrad. Since graduate school, he has taught and lectured around the country and continued to pursue his interests in literature, art, and science.

The couple designed the Los Angeles Lakers new diet, and, for the benefit of adults and children everywhere, hope to make well-sourced foods a bigger part of sports-coolness than sugary drinks.
