What is Genetic Lifehacks?

I’m confused….  What is Genetic Lifehacks all about?

Think of Genetic Lifehacks as a great tool for your health kit. My goal is to help you learn how to make the necessary changes to solve a health challenge or personalize your diet for optimal health – all based on your genetics.  

Genetic Lifehacks focuses on 3 key strategies: Learn, Experiment, Optimize.

To Learn: We explain the science behind health and genetics topics so you can make healthy choices right for your genes.

To Experiment: Every article includes evidence-based solutions or ‘lifehacks’ to apply, based on your genes.

To Optimize: Current health and genetics research are always included so you can fine-tune your supplements or lifestyle changes to improve your quality of life.

These 3 key strategies build upon each other to create the potential for a longer healthspan. That’s the goal, to live a long and healthy life without the chronic diseases that plague many people today.

 

What Genetic Lifehacks does NOT do:

My goal is to only share high quality, peer-reviewed genetic information that you can actually use.

You won’t find here:

  • Buzzwords like Hyperdimensional Computing, AI, or Deep Learning.
  • Smiley faces or frowny faces. Instead, the information is presented for you to interpret and understand, as a thinking adult.
  • “Bad genes”  There are pros and cons to most genetic variants; it all depends on your environmental factors.
  • Imputing and guessing at your genome. Many companies are now using algorithms to guess your likely genotype based on nearby genes. This type of guesswork is fine for statistical analysis, but for an individual genotype is not nearly accurate enough.

I’m also not out to amass data on my users.

Genetic Lifehacks does not store your genetic data for a very important reason: Just imagine what other genetic reports companies can do with your user data, genetic data, and medical labs.  Then envision what a large tech company like Facebook or Amazon could do with the combined data on your friends, purchase, websites you’ve visited, politics, religious views, and more — along with all of your personal genetic data, medical labs, and viewing history.
