Epigenetics: The science of Human Empowerment

For many years, scientists and doctors assumed that cancer was caused by damage to some critical stretch of DNA within one’s genome. Recently, a more complex picture has emerged, one that shows that some cancers are caused by epigenetic changes—tiny chemical tags that accumulate over time and can turn genes on or off. Unlike genetic damage, epigenetic changes can sometimes be reversed, and with treatments that are less toxic than conventional chemotherapy.

This is an amazing common sense approach to epigenetics, from the brilliant mind of Dr. Bruce Lipton
