Learn about what epigenetics is, its impact on life, and the need to understand its impact on life.
Epigenetics is a study in biology that seeks to understand how behavior and environment affect our genes. Contrary to what people think, epigenetics and genetics work differently, for instance, in the light of reversibility. While genetic changes are irreversible, epigenetic changes can be reversed as they do not affect or change the genetic sequence. What happens is that they change how your body reads and interprets DNA.
Epigenetics change with time; it could be as a result of age, a change of environment, or part of development. Epigenetics affect our lives, and more so, in light of health.
How epigenetics affects health
Changes in epigenetics can affect health in several ways.
Epigenetic changes can make an individual more vulnerable to cancer. A good example is a BRCA1 gene. Mutations in this gene can affect its functionality, making the individual more likely to develop cancer. When epigenetic changes occur, DNA methylation increases, which is also known to increase the risk of developing different types of cancer.
An individual can develop infections if the immune system is weak. Germs change a person's epigenetics, resulting to a weak immune system, where germs can thrive. For instance, as with the case of tuberculosis, Mycobacterium, which is the bacteria behind it, causes epigenetic changes in the immune cells, weakening the immune system to create an environment where it can survive.

The environment of a pregnant woman can cause epigenetic changes in a baby. The epigenetic changes that take place in a baby during pregnancy can result in a weakened immune system. This can make the immune system of the baby unable to fight infections and diseases during its life.
Things such as the type of foods consumed during pregnancy can cause these changes and affect the baby's health when born. Poor nutrition can lead to a decrease in methylation of a given type of genes and increase some, making the babies more likely to develop some diseases.
Why is it important to learn about the impact of epigenetics on our lives?
Understanding the impact of epigenetics in lives adds to the genetic knowledge and shows how lifestyle can affect changes in our bodies and lives. Epigenetics also helps in clinical research and the discovery of new medicine.
RSM Therapy to Deactivate The DNA
RSM therapy for deactivating the DNA can help in regulating the impact of epigenetics. Epigenetics cause changes in the way our bodies read genes. For instance, increased DNA methylation can affect the functioning of genes that prevent cancerous cells' growth.
Through DNA deactivation, some genes that may have been impaired through epigenetics can be silenced and prevent their expression, which can lead to the growth of cancerous cells and the development of a myriad of health issues.
As aforementioned, some epigenetics are reversible, and this has brought focus to epigenetic therapy, which is valuable in modern medicine.
