Can we alter our epigenome?
« on: 11/12/2012 18:52:20 »
Is there any research into undoing some of the stuff that’s been done?” and you were mentioning about how a baby inside a mother who’s pregnant has the future babies inside that.  He says here, “If our parent’s lifestyles before we were conceived can determine how much of our DNA expresses itself, is there any research to potentially undoing things like predisposition to obesity, diabetes, and addiction?

We answered this question on the show...

Stefanie -   Undoing things, I am not sure about, but simply by having a healthy lifestyle, you can take preventative measures.  Simply by being aware that what you do, what you eat, what you expose yourself to, will affect future generations, can maybe raise awareness and help preventing damage.
