On heredity, disease and the family table

"Eating is a very habitual and unconscious activity; frequently we continue to eat as adults whatever our mother fed us as a child. I consider it unsurprising when people develop the very same disease conditions as their parents. They wrongly assume [and doctors wrongly assert] the cause is genetic inheritance, when actually it was just because they were putting their feet under the same table as their parents.

-Dr. Isabelle A. Moser
