Personalized Genetics: The Quote

Genes load the gun. Lifestyle pulls the trigger.

By Dr. Elliot Joslin.

Genes load the gun, but environment pulls the trigger. The idea that it’s all in your genes is nonsense. The human genome changes only one half of one percent every million years. The obesity epidemic is only about 30 years old, so changes in genes do not explain the recent dramatic rise in obesity, not only in this country but also worldwide.”

By Dr. David Heber, of UCLA Center for Human Nutrition.

I’ve already heard both. Do you know which one is the original?
