1. How do you think that these video relate to the topic of factors that help determine our health? Does one video seem more realistic than the other? One does seem more realistic as genes don’t decide who you are and how healthy you are but they are a very big reason people are the way they are as well as environments that they have grown up in. 2. The first video seems to give a simple message about how leading a more stress-free life can vastly improve our health. If it’s that simple, why are so many people stressed and sick? People often don’t think about the future so when it becomes present they are not prepared for it. 3. In the first video, Dean Ornish closes by saying, “Well, our genes are not our fate, and if we make these changes, there’s a predisposition. But if we make bigger changes than we might have made otherwise, we can actually change how our genes are expressed.” Do you agree with this statement after watching both videos? Do you think that lifestyle may actually be able to change your genetic predisposition to disease and health?
