The rise in personal involvement in one's own health care and the fact that most people no longer are cared for throughout their lives by a traditional family doctor have made it seem more important for individuals to take charge of their own medical histories. This book is meant to be the core text for a personal program to do just that. By using the "pedigree template" Nelson-Anderson and Waters provide, readers can summarize their own individual and family health histories. If in library copies this tool is lost, the comprehensive explanation of the ills that flesh actually, factually is heir to enables anyone to more knowledgeably contribute to maintaining personal wellness. Logically organized, lucidly written, this is a most useful addition to health self-care literature. Dennis WintersReview:
As the Human Genome project continues to rapidly advance we are learning more and more about the role heredity plays in reference to inherited diseases, physical traits conducive to disease, and mental health problems, addictive proclivities to alcohol and drugs, even heart disease and alzheimers. Genetic Connections: A Guide to Documenting Your Individual and Family Health History has never been needed before like it is needed now. Genetic Connections is a vital tool to establishing a kind of "health pedigree". Sensible, practical, comprehensive, this is an extraordinary addition to any library or personal health & self-care bookshelf. -- Midwest Book Review
