Watch NOVA about epigenetics

Recommended Posts

If you get a chance, please watch the NOVA show on Public Broadcasting System (PBS) about epigenetics and the second genome. Very interesting when watched with endocrine/cushings in mind. Also stress markers and personality changes.




I think you can also read the program trancript.


I would love to hear what anyone else thinks.

Yes, epigenetics is one of the up-and-coming fields of genetics. I talked to some doctors about it on twitter and they laughed at me until I showed them some research. (I love doing that...aren't I awful?) I've blogged a little about it.


I have no doubt there is an epigenetic factor with obesity and possibly other endocrine related symptoms. Whether it is a cause of Cushing's...I have no idea.


I'll have to look for the show! Thank you!
