LiveScience took a look at how the human body really works. They say life experiences from toxin exposure to physical affection can alter how our genes work. The article goes on to say we share most of our DNA instructions with monkeys, apes and even the worm. What keeps us from having a long tail is how our epigenome interacts with our genome. They say that our epigenome is a moderator between the environment and our genes. It has the ability to change us quickly to react to environmental changes. “Food is truly medicine when you are talking about epigenetic changes,” says Randy Jirtle. We have been talking about this in my book and in this BLOG for years.
