Synopsis

It's not about talent or destiny?it's about switching on your genes!

The essence of the documentary film SWITCH, which has moved audiences all over Japan, is captured in this book, in which a world-class authority on biotechnology talks about how to make "miracles" happen. Each of our genes has a switch, although there are many people who aren't aware of this fact. We all imagine genes to be immutable forms that are passed down to us from our parents, but they are dynamic and can change when they’re influenced. University of Tsukuba Professor Emeritus Kazuo Murakami, whose noteworthy achievements in biotechnology are acknowledged around the world, provides a scientific explanation of this phenomenon using real-life examples. He talks about Junko and Momoko Suzuki, both of whom survived a major accident, and the experiences of Katsuko Yamamoto, a special-needs school teacher. He then touches on the aftermath of the Great East Japan Earthquake, life, and the soul.
