Our genetics are not our destiny and genetic predisposition to disease is influenced by the signals to which our genes are exposed. Epigenetics is like a tiny instruction manual that tells your body how to work. It’s made up of chemical tags that sit on top of our DNA and help to turn certain genes on or off. Just like how you can turn a light switch on or off to control the lights in your room, your body uses epigenetics to control which genes are active or not. These chemical tags can be influenced by things like what you eat, how much you sleep, and even how you feel. So it’s important to take care of your body and make healthy choices so that your epigenetics can help keep you strong and healthy!
