He has researched the field of behavioral epigenetics, which holds the promise of modifying behavior by changing gene expression. Baird holds a PhD in natural health and is the author of six books on human behavior. He has won many awards and appeared on major TV stations and dozens of radio shows. His most recently published book is Behavioral Genes-Why We Do What We Do and How to Change.

New study supports concept of Happiness Genes

By |August 23rd, 2013|Epigenetics|

A new study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, found that happiness affects the human genome.  The researchers concepts of happiness from a sense of purpose in life, and hedonic well-being, which focuses on the self-gratification.  High levels of eudaemonic happiness were correlated with favorable gene expression for the immune system, including [...]

Bruce Lipton, epigenetics and Happiness Genes

By |March 28th, 2013|Epigenetics|

Bruce Lipton Bruce Lipton, New York Times best selling author of the ‘Biology of Beliefs’ is generally considered the guru of epigenetics, as related to perspectives and beliefs. Consequently it was befitting that Dr Lipton wrote the foreword to Happiness Genes, since the book uniquely describes Natural happiness as the product of reprogrammed genetics and epigenetics.  [...]

Woman Happiness Gene

By |March 12th, 2013|Epigenetics|

More evidence for Women of genetic happiness as described in the book "Happiness Genes" A gene that seems to make females happy, but not males, has been identified by researchers at the University of South Florida, Columbia University, and the New York State Psychiatry Institute. Their study has been published in Progress in Neuro-Psychopharmacology & Biological Psychiatry. [...]

Resurrecting Company Loyalty

By |July 7th, 2012|Epigenetics|

It seems like just a couple of decades ago company loyalty was standard operating procedure for both employees and consumers.  But since then, deteriorating economic conditions and aggressive competition changed the playing field and it has been every individual and company for themselves. However, this circumstance shouldn’t be a big surprise; it is just another [...]

Company Teamwork – A Genetic Myth

By |June 13th, 2012|Epigenetics|

Since prehistoric times, the highest genetic priority for males was survival, chiefly by competing for resources.  Since then, little has changed except the ‘caveman’ of today is more formal and may even wear a suit. While this is somewhat obvious and concerning, viewing the state of the world, the cost of competition versus cooperation in [...]

The Devil Made Me Do It

By |April 14th, 2012|Epigenetics|

The core error of human beliefs is that we are responsible for our behavior. But the truth is that human behavior is directed by our genetic priorities. Our genetic priorities are hard wired and displayed by our biology and our unconscious mind. Consequently, when we are not in our conscious mind, which is usually the [...]

Diet With Epigenetics

By |January 22nd, 2012|Epigenetics|

Overweight is generally due to genetic predispositions.  Diets don’t work because they won’t accept this reality.  The solution is to reduce our genetic drives for fats sweets and calories.  The concerned ‘hungry’ genes can be turned off by the new science of diet with epigenetics, using your conscious mind. An understanding and a self help [...]

Decreasing Anxiety by Epigenetics

By |November 25th, 2011|Epigenetics|

Epigenetics is the science of heritable changes in gene expression or cellular phenotype caused by mechanisms other than changes in the underlying DNA sequence Examples of such changes might be DNA methylation or histone deacetylation, both of which serve to suppress gene expression without altering the sequence of the silenced genes. In simple terms, it’s the science of why two people with the same [...]

Changing Our Genetic Behavior with Epigenetics

By |November 16th, 2011|Epigenetics|

Until recent times, it has been assumed that the reason why we behave the way we do, is due to our inherited genetic programming modified by our environment, over generations –in other words - evolution. However, it has recently been discovered that we are not prisoners of our genes in our lifetime; rather, we can [...]
