Brief Introduction to Epigenetics

Finally these concepts are starting to hit mainstream media: that your genes do not control your future, and are not to blame for all your problems. In the nature/nurture argument, genetic manifestation of what’s going on in your life accounts for less than 25%.

Bruce Lipton is a cell biologist who has been studying epigenetics for 40 years. He was one of the first people that got me interested in the science behind chiropractic: how a change in stimulus to the nervous system can alter our genetic expression. It always reminds me of my favourite joke by Bill Hicks, “Evolution didn’t end with us growing thumbs, you know that, right?”

School textbooks on genetics are not going to change for another 10 years, so for those who want a head start on understanding epigenetics, here is a brief introduction.
