Janine Gee (B.Ed)
Janine Gee was born, raised and educated in Adelaide, South Australia. Throughout her diverse career she has worked all around Australia in the Information Technology and Education industries.
For 30 years, Janine was frustratingly plump. In 2001, a lengthy juggle of dieting and many minor ailments culminated in a battle with a persistent migraine (that lasted for weeks). Finding a solution to this migraine sparked a journey of unimaginable discovery which became the foundation of the book The Epigenetics Of Diet (the first draft was titled The Noughties® Lifestyle).
Obesity now rates in Australia as an epidemic. Some experts believe Australia is the fattest nation. Preventative medicine is Janine’s passion. The illnesses she repeatedly experienced are commonly treated individually by doctors. It is Janine’s aim to equip doctors with a simple interpretation of research on the effects of diet on people from the pre-agriculture age right through to the present. She knows that redefining “healthful foods” is a monumental challenge and is dedicated to this important cause as it will save lives. No drugs, no operations, no expensive programs ... just good old-fashioned truly nutritious foods.
Janine has settled in Brisbane, Australia, and is devoted mother to two cherished boys.

John Elms spent more than 20 years at the University of Southern Queensland in Toowoomba Queensland. During this time he has conducted comprehensive applied research in regard to improving higher education student productivity. After directly observing many novice higher education students struggling with the various forms of 'progressive assessment' he formulated a simple and practical set of productivity strategies to cope with the most common forms of assessment.
His books are respected by students because the strategies described in them are easy for most students to implement and readily produce improved results.
