Taking the audience on a journey to “mind, mouth and muscles”, Dr. Peeke approaches in an accessible and funny style, heavy and important subjects like: how the brain gets damaged by addictions and “false fixes”, how sugar and Oreo cookies generate the same brain reactions like morphine and cocaine, why “stressed” spelled backwards is “desserts”, how lack of sleep impacts the size of your belly and how, due to epigenetics, a healthy lifestyle can reverse most of the ailments an addictive living had caused..
The bottom line: “Every single thought you have, every single mouthful of whatever you are eating, every single step you take, changes gene expression (…) and changes your destiny. You write your own life script.”
