Person to Follow: Peter Diamandis – Peter Diamandis is the founder and chairman of the X Prize Foundation, founder of Singularity University, and co-author of two of my favorite books Bold and Abundance. The X Prize foundation creates, funds, and directs massive public incentive competitions, generally with the goal of developing ideas and technologies that will greatly benefit humanity.
Singularity University is a B-Corp that offers classes and hosts summits, all with the intention of creating a beautiful, abundant future. They also have a fantastic youtube channel that posts mind blowing presentations on advances in Energy, Medicine, Transport, AI, and other cutting edge fields.

Emerging Field – Nutrigenomics
Nutrigenomics is a relatively new field of study that looks at the connection between our diets and our genes. It turns out that different dietary and lifestyle choices can have a significant effect on the way our genes are expressed. Given that we all have a different set of genes, these expression tendencies often vary significantly from person to person, which is part of the reason why there is no one-size-fits-all diet. I, for example, seem to have certain mutations that negatively affect my folate metabolism pathways. It’s nothing too serious, but it does mean that I should consume more folate, as this vitamin is involved in a large number of metabolic operations.
To learn more about mutations affecting the folate pathway, click here. I’d recommend doing this, as a large number of people are unaware that they have these mutations and you might be one of them. For a more in-depth overview of what nutrigenomics is all about, and how you can tailor your diet based on your genetic information, click here.
I’m going to be keeping an eye on advances in nutrigenomics, mostly because I find the idea of genetically tailored diets that optimize energy and health to be very exciting.
