Exposure to Cold Temperatures Can Change Our Gene Expression and Fat Cells

Long-term exposure to cold temperatures could actually affect our gene expression and influence our fat cells, a recent study suggests. Research published in Nature Communications offers more evidence on how lifestyle choices and exposure to our environment can dictate the way our genes express themselves, an overarching theme of epigenetics. A group of researchers based … Continue reading Exposure to Cold Temperatures Can Change Our Gene Expression and Fat Cells

Diet and Good Gut Bacteria Could Epigenetically Change Your Gene Expression

There are many different diets available in the nutritional world today that could dramatically adjust our gut bacteria, depending on what we consume. High-fat, low-carb diets, low-fat, high-carb diets, fasting, and cleanses are just a few examples of popular diets, and even what some may call “fads”, which might leave a person confused (and hungry). … Continue reading Diet and Good Gut Bacteria Could Epigenetically Change Your Gene Expression

Social Deficits of Autism Reversed By Epigenetic Drug

It is estimated that 1 in 59 children in the United States fall somewhere on the autism spectrum. Autism spectrum disorder  (ASD) is a developmental disorder that affects the nervous system and is characterized by challenges with speech, social skills and communication.  Many factors can determine a child’s predisposition to developing autism, such as genetic mutations during … Continue reading Social Deficits of Autism Reversed By Epigenetic Drug

Recent Epigenetic Discovery Could Help Revitalize Immune Response to Cancer and Viruses

A recent discovery out of St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital finds an epigenetic cause to why T-cells fall ineffective in immune responses to cancer and viral infections.  T-cells, a type of cell produced by the thymus gland, are a critical combatant in the human immune system. Their main job is to fight foreign invaders such … Continue reading Recent Epigenetic Discovery Could Help Revitalize Immune Response to Cancer and Viruses

Epigenetic Mechanism Shows Promise in the Fight Against HIV Latency

HIV is a chronic viral infection that attacks the immune system, eventually incapacitating its ability to fight infection leaving the person vulnerable to the development of AIDS, which often leads to death. Anti-retroviral therapies can help to control the virus, but complete eradication of the virus has been tricky to achieve due its stealthy ability … Continue reading Epigenetic Mechanism Shows Promise in the Fight Against HIV Latency

Harnessing Epigenetics to Prevent the Immune System from Attacking Itself

Cannabidiol and Magnesium Help Treats DiabetesAs the weather gets cooler and winter begins to set in, we’re reminded that the immune system is our first line of defense against foreign pathogens and helps prevent us from getting sick. The immune system is comprised of different types of cells that are able to recognize and destroy … Continue reading Harnessing Epigenetics to Prevent the Immune System from Attacking Itself

Epigenetics, Nutrition, and Our Health: How What We Eat Could Affect Tags on Our DNA

Many of us are familiar with the foods that damage our bodies – they slow our metabolism, might add a few pounds, and stiffen our arteries. But what if certain food items could help or harm us in a place we may never have considered – like our DNA? A developing field called nutriepigenomics examines … Continue reading Epigenetics, Nutrition, and Our Health: How What We Eat Could Affect Tags on Our DNA
