About the event
Almost unnoticed by the public, the experts' understanding of what health is and how the so-called "endemic diseases" are caused is currently changing. New findings of modern biology show: Health is not a state. It is a continuous process. The body's cells continue working against ageing and illness all the time. In the process, they remember environmental influences and the consequences of one's own lifestyle. Even the experience of parents and grandparents, their diets or emotional stress, are stored on a molecular-biological level, like the events from the time before and after birth. Health is a project spanning several generations. Peter Spork explains how the passing on of health and personality works and how we can pave the way to a healthy and happy life for our children.
Peter Spork, born in 1965, studied biology and acquired a doctorate in the field of neurobiology/ bio-cybernetics. Since 1991, he has worked as a freelance science journalist, i.a. for Die Zeit and Süddeutsche Zeitung, and is a highly sought-after speaker at company congresses and specialist conferences.
