Epigenetics is the study of how our environment affects the expression of our genes.  They can be turned off and on depending on our lifestyles, including dietary factors.  Check a previous post HERE for more epigenetics. Interesting!

This new study further supports the role of diet with its accompanying nutrients in the expression of our genetic makeup. Very interesting in a field that is in its infancy.
