Epigenetics - Does lifestyle change heredity? – Thomas Jenuwein
From the shownotes
Stress and nutrition change our health. But can they also change our genetic make-up afterwards? In such a way that we inherit the genetic effects of our lifestyle? But despite many interesting studies, the evidence is thin and the researchers are divided. This radio feature by Michael Lange for SWR2 Wissen provides a comprehensive overview on the most recent findings in the new field of epigenetics. Max Planck director Thomas Jenuwein answers questions about the DNA, Chromatin and how the packaging of the DNA controls the functioning of our cells.
The feature is only available in German.
