Many of you have heard of "Dead Doctors Don't Lie" veterinarian Joel Wallach.

I met Joel at a conference many years ago and asked him about a scientific paper he published wherein he claimed to have demonstrated that he knew how to feed a herd of cows so that their offspring were either sexually sure or, instead, feed them so that they were sexually confused. In our conversation he carried that further to unequivocally state that he could guarantee a "straight" child to any couple that approached him for pre-conception nutritional counseling.

According to Joel, it all has to do with nutrition.  He strongly suggested that certain parts of the brain could not properly develop if certain minerals were in short supply at various developmental stages.

Not everyone is concerned with the potential sexual orientation of their children-to-be, but many parents grow anxious about the subject.

This website, and the brix theory itself, address the problem of helping people, parents included, locate and/or grow the highest quality food.  Feeding people what their genetic makeup requires allows their full genetic expression.

A recent article in New Scientist points out just how important that sentence is "Only by feeding people what their genetic makeup requires can allow their full genetic expression."

You are what your mother ate, suggests study

What mothers eat during pregnancy could have a fundamental and lifelong effect on the genes of their children, suggests an intriguing new study in mice.

Researchers found they could change the coat colour of baby mice by feeding their mothers different levels of four common nutrients during pregnancy. These altered how the pups' cells read their genes. As a result the mice were also less prone to obesity and diabetes than genetically identical mice whose mothers received no supplement.

The mothers given the vitamin supplements gave birth to darker pups than those on a standard diet

The work establishes the tightest link yet between diet and a strange form of inheritance known as epigenetics. Unlike a mutation which changes the DNA sequence of genes, epigenetic factors can alter how a gene is used, while leaving the DNA sequence unchanged.

The mouse study was conducted by Randy Jirtle, at Duke University Medical Center in Durham, North Carolina, and his colleague Robert Waterland. Jirtle says the work belies a "more is better" philosophy about food supplements.

"The rationale is that there is no downside - you can't get too much of this stuff," he says. "But there could be a lifelong downside and we have no clue yet about what those effects are."
