Some brief overview of this book

Time to worry againour lifestyle choices do impact our genetic code and that of our children (and even grandchildren!). The potential is staggering. .

. . The age of epigenetics has arrived.

Time, January 2010 Epigenetic means on the gene, and the term refers to the recent discovery that stress in the environment can impact an individuals physiology so deeply that those biological scars are actually inherited by the next several generations. For instance, a recent study has shown that men who started smoking before puberty caused their sons to have significantly higher rates of obesity. And obesity is just the tip of the icebergmany researchers believe that epigenetics holds the key to understanding cancer, Alzheimers, schizophrenia, autism, and diabetes.

Epigenetics is the first book for general readers on this fascinating and important topic. The book is driven by stories such as the Dutch famine of World War II, José Canseco and steroids, the breeding of mules and hinnies, Tazmanian devils and contagious cancer, and more.
