Meet the author of You Are What Your Grandparents Ate: What You Need to Know About Nutrition, Experience, Epigenetics and the Origins of Chronic Disease.

Finlayson has written books on a variety of subjects, from personal well-being and women's history to food and nutrition. Her latest, You Are What Your Grandparents Ate, takes conventional wisdom about the origins of chronic disease and turns it upside down. Rooted in the work of the late epidemiologist Dr. David Barker, it highlights the exciting research showing that heredity involves much more than the genes your parents passed on to you. Thanks to the relatively new science of epigenetics, we now know that the experiences of previous generations may show up in your health and well-being. You Are What Your Grandparents Ate makes hard science accessible and is a call to action for social as well as personal change.
