Epigenetics is the study of how lifestyle and environment factors can change the structure of your DNA.
Epigenetics is a combination of nature and nurture. While you are born with a unique set of genes, your lifestyle and environment can cause certain genes to be turned off or turned on.
Leading scientists have shown that 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.
