Albert is born on 5 June 2084. At birth a prick of blood is drawn for DNA sequencing of his genome and epigenome. The Wellness App diagnoses Albert’s long term disease risks. Fecal matching is done and he is given a optimal colonisation from a suitable donor.
For the first two years of Albert’s life he is provided with careful environmental cues matching his DNA profile, ensuring optimal neuronal synapses in the brain for a happy and healthy life. The MedChip is implanted at six months to monitor sleep, food, activity and language. Data is uploaded to the Wellness App providing Albert with constant feedback about his optimal life options.
Unlike the Orwellian view of life, now we have learned how to help people live happier healthier lives. This requires individuals to take control of their own data and their own health for better outcomes. Discover how metabolic systems biology could revolutionise our health by offering precision medicine.
