The US National Library of Medicine says epigenetics is a new bridge between nutrition and health. The nutrients we digest can actually change the epigenetic influences on our genes. Genes that are switched off can get switched back on and genes that were on can be switched back off. The relevance of this can only be determined by what the gene does. If the gene creates cancer or disease it is best switched off. If it promotes health and happiness it is better switch on.
