We all have a unique natural heritage: our DNA. Did you know that it is possible to eat according to your genes? Among other things, why do two people subjected to the same lifestyle and the same conditions react differently to the same diet?

“Environment and diet are well identified as the two main factors that influence our health. The foods we eat directly or indirectly modulate the expression of our genes: this is Nutrigenomics. This part of nutritional genetics makes it possible to tell whether foods improve, degrade or maintain our health.

Be-Unick is a group of Canadian and African health professionals working to ensure that everyone lives happily and ages well by relying on cutting-edge technology, and on what is Unick in us: our genetic material.

Join us on Monday 21 March at 10 am at the Alliance Française de Penang to learn more about Nutrigenomics.
The presentation will be given in French by Gaelle Ngaha Yossa, MD, MBA and nutritionist.
