Our genetic codes makes up who we are. Or does it? Just because we have a certain gene, it doesn’t mean it will be active. The field of epigenetics has opened up our understanding on how genes may, or may not, be turned on. And this can have implications for our health.
For this podcast I’m joined by Dr. Angela Devlin (Twitter: @AngelaMDevlin), an Associate Professor in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of British Columbia. She also co-leads the Origins of Child Health and Disease Research Group at BC Children’s Hospital Research Institute. Angela is a leader in nutrition, metabolism and epigenetic processes in pregnancy and early childhood to help bring better understanding of the development of diabetes and heart disease.
During the interview, Angela provides an introduction to the fascinating field of epigenetics and how it relates to your nutrition and health.
