Lifestyle Choices Could Affect Gene Sequences That Code for Cancer

It is not totally unknown that our lifestyles and diet do affect our physiology and subsequently our disease sequence in line with our particular genetic predisposition. The study of epigenetics (mostly the study of heritable changes that are not caused by changes in the DNA sequence; to a lesser extent, it describes the study of stable, long-term alterations in the transcriptional potential of a cell that are not necessarily heritable) has surfaced some intriguing possibilities where we actually can determine how healthy we would like to be, by changing our diet and lifestyles.
