President of India Dr APJ Abdul Kalam’s public statement about FRIGE:
I met Prof Jayesh Sheth in last September and learned from his papers that genetics is not only about forecasting; it is about knowing the reasons behind our present existence and a quest about how to mitigate the negative outcomes in distant future by acting now. I also learnt from those papers, how low protein diet, low Vitamin B12 and other gene nutritional interaction is more likely for the error which occurs in chromosome transfer during pregnancy and how birth of a healthy child can be ensured by taking good care of the pregnant mother.
