Epigenetics is the study of how lifestyle and environment factors can change the structure of your DNA.
This is a combination of nature and nurture. Whilst you are born with a unique set of genes, your lifestyle and environment can cause certain genes to be turned off or turned on.
What you eat, where you live, who you interact with, when you sleep, how you exercise, even ageing – all of these can eventually cause genes to be turned on or off over time. Additionally, in certain diseases such as cancer or Alzheimer’s, some genes will be switched into the opposite state, away from the normal, healthy state.
Even though we are all human, why do some of us have blonde hair or darker skin? Why are some of us more sociable than others? The different combinations of genes that are turned on or off is what makes each one of us unique. Furthermore, there is evidence to show that some epigenetic changes can be inherited.
With 20,000+ genes, what will be the result of the different combinations of genes being turned on or off? The possible arrangements are enormous! But if we could map every single cause and effect of the different combinations, and if we could reverse the gene’s state to keep the good while eliminating the bad… then we could theoretically cure cancer, slow ageing, stop obesity, and so much more.
