Natural Compound in Cypress Trees Might Epigenetically Protect Against Cancer

A chemical in an essential oil extracted from tree bark might actually reduce cancer growth. Researchers are finding that hinokitiol, a compound found in some cypress trees, not only has anti-infective and anti-oxidative properties, but it might also impact the epigenetic tags on top of DNA and reactivate genes that fight against tumor growth. The epigenetic … Continue reading Natural Compound in Cypress Trees Might Epigenetically Protect Against Cancer

Paternal Environmental and Lifestyle Factors Influence Epigenetic Inheritance

There is strong evidence that suggests certain environmental or lifestyle factors may lead to increased risk of developing chronic diseases. These factors such as diet, behavior, stress, exposure to pollutants, and physical activity have been known to cause epigenetic changes which may be passed down from one generation to the next. It is believed that a father’s exposure to … Continue reading Paternal Environmental and Lifestyle Factors Influence Epigenetic Inheritance
