Just because your parents had it doesn't mean you are going to get it.


Do your parents have diabetes? Is there a history of heart disease or cancer in your family?

These are questions your doctor likely will ask on pre-appointment paperwork or shortly after introducing himself. While conventional medicine subscribes to the theory of genetically inherited diseases, the scientific literature may not be so definitive. The truth might just be that what we actually inherit from our parents is their cookbook and their training log, or rather, their approach to diet and exercise. If we replicate what Mom and Dad did with their forks and their feet, logic dictates that our health (or lack of health) will often follow suit.
