What exactly is Epigenetics?
The formal description of Epigenetics from the text secrets refers to the study of changes in organisms caused by modification of gene expression rather than by an alteration of the genetic code itself. That might not tell us very much but it really is an important statement! It’s no longer simply a case of identifying which particular genes you have.
We now know that it’s the way your genes are influenced and made to work that makes the difference. Gene expression accounts for so many of our characteristics. And changes in gene expression have been related to a very wide range of environmental influences and that includes – are you ready for this? – What we eat!
Yes, that’s absolutely right. The kind of food we consume every single day, the quality of the food we eat, the eating choices we make all contribute far more to our total health and well-being than was ever appreciated before. It’s not a question of being preprogrammed by our DNA. We’ve been bombarded by articles and news items for decades telling us every day that everything in our lives is caused by our genes.
