Description


You Are About To Develop An Insider Understanding Of Epigenetics, Including Their Relationship With The DNA, Environmental Factors, Human Development And Evolution; Their Role In Human Mental And Physical Health, Including Their Use In The Treating Of Different Conditions And Diseases Along With The Most Current Epigenetic Practices And Research

What started as a broad research focused on combining genetics and developmental biology during the mid-twentieth century has evolved into the field we currently refer to as epigenetics- the mechanism of gene control that can either promote or repress gene expression without altering the genetic coding of the organism.


More precisely, you will learn:

- What epigenetics are and their role in developmental psychology

- The influence of epigenetics at the molecular level and the impact of DNA damage in epigenetic change

- How epigenetics are studied

- The functions and consequences of epigenetics, and their specific benefits in mindfulness training, healthy eating and physical activity

- How genes control the growth and division of cells

- The role of epigenetic therapy in diabetic retinopathy, emotional disorders, cardiac dysfunction, cancer and schizophrenia and many more

- How epigenetic modifications are used in cancer treatment, and plant and animal evolution

- How epigenetic mechanisms are used in processes including human adaptation, memory formation, growth and infant neuro-behavior.

- How epigenetic mechanisms are used in maternal care

- How environmental chemical exposures affect epigenetics

- The role of epigenetics in neurodegenerative diseases, drug formation, human development, the development of Hox genes and many more

- The role of environmental exposures in pathophysiology of IPF

- Modulation of epigenetic marks by environmental exposures

- How epigenetic regulation affects the immune system


...And so much more


So if you've been exposed to the concept of epigenetics as a novel way of understanding disorders, inheritance and evolution and wondered what it's really all about and how it's related with environmental exposure and different therapy practices, this book is all you need
