Know Self - Socrates Quote
[spp-tweet tweet="Eating process sugar is bad for you! This isn't rocket science. #sugarfree #23andme #dna #analysis @AnthonyGJay "]
People need to realize that health is personalized. Everybody is a little different, don't be too dogmatic about it. Don't be like oh I'm a Vegan so everyone else has to be a Vegan. Or, I'm a Carnivore so everyone else has to be a Carnivore.
There are definitely certain principles that apply to everybody. For example, eating process sugar is bad for you! There IS a lot of diversity and customization available, so you want to be aware of that.
Knowledge is power, so the smarter you are about your health, the more healthy you're going to be. The more you take control of this, the better it is going to be. The reason Socrates was considered to be the wisest man in the world was that he knew his limitations. He knew himself. "Know Self"
