WHAT IS EPIGENETICS? - Epigenetics
'Epi' means 'above'. The 'epigenome' sits around the genome. The epigenome is made up of various molecules that attach to the outside of the genome like little 'tags’. These tags can change the 'messages' that get sent to our genome from the outside world. This is how the our nutrition, environment and lifestyle choices can change how our genome expresses itself.
