Catalyst - Epigenetics
You are what you eat... but science suggests you're also what your grandmother ate. We've always known that the genes of our ancestors are passed on through generations, but could they pass on something more than just their genes?
In 2000 the human genome was finally mapped and scientists had cracked our genetic code. But they didn't bargain on discovering a hidden array of switches that can be turned on, or off, not only by what our bodies experience, but also by what our predecessors got up to.
This discovery has opened a brave new world of medical research and has implications for the development of treatments for many diseases including cancer.
