The Health Living Magazine talks about diabetes as being caused by epigenetics but also triggering other epigenetic actions. Diabetes is a complex disease but it now appears it is related to our environment (diet, thought and beliefs). Epigenetics is far too complicated for us to totally understand or appreciate but some combination of epigenetic triggers can cause diabetes. Once the disease takes hold, it then triggers others epigenetic actions. Scientists believe that the key to this disease and others is in the intersection between the environment and the genes.
