Genes and Disease
Many diseases, we believe are caused by variation in many genes. The biggest challenge to genetic researchers, is to identify the genes that contribute to these diseases. And it has proven quite difficult.
To make matters more complicated the external environment's effects upon genes can influence disease
Beyond the aforementioned causes, a number of alternative genetic scenarios can also lead to disease; such scenarios fall under the umbrella of epigenetics.
Hank & his clone Circus Hank explain the power of epigenetics, which studies the factors that determine how much or whether some genes are expressed in your body.
What we thought of as something fixed, DNA is actually very cleverly modified according to current environmental needs. Even before a baby is born, it already knows what world to prepare itself for. Moshe in this talk sheds light on his groundbreaking findings. Moshe Szyf is one of the poineers in the field of epigenetics.
Dr. Peeke is an internationally renowned physician, scientist, expert and speaker in integrative medicine. Acclaimed as one of America's top physicians. She talks about the event that changed our understanding of genes
