Epigenetics

I read an interesting article in Discover that I want to share. It's about "epigenetics" which is the study of environmental enfluence on gene expression.

DNA Is Not Destiny

I'm not one to get very excited about nutritional suppliments and the like but this was interesting. It could help explain why some disorders seem to appear out of the blue without an infection or genetic/ family link. An epigenitic mechanism could be altered, causing a normal gene to be turned off or a dormant mutant gene to be turned on. :unsure:
