Publisher's Summary

You are a step away from opening your eyes and mind to the world of epigenetics in a manner that will help you appreciate the complexity of the human cell, genes, and other components and how that knowledge is being applied in transforming lives!

In the Dutch Hunger Winter of 1944 - 1945, the individuals who were exposed to the famine just before birth were seen, about 60 years later, to have increased rates of coronary heart disease and obesity compared to those who weren’t exposed to the famine.

That must been a result of an alteration in their genetic coding, right?

No.

Apparently, they were found to have less DNA methylation (addition of methyl groups to the DNA molecule to change a segment without affecting the DNA’s sequence) of the imprinted Insulin-like Growth Factor-2 gene compared to their siblings who had not been exposed, which shows the role of a powerful factor that doesn’t require the change of the genetic sequence in organisms in development and evolution.

That factor is epigenetics and has been singled out by experts as a very important factor in evolution, yet it's so underestimated in modern biology.

But how is this process organized and controlled in the human body? How is it being used to advance human health? What are some of the innovative ways we benefit from it, perhaps harness its power to improve chronic diseases and conditions? Are there any risks in epigenetic therapy? How does epigenetics work at the most basic level?

If you have these questions now or have been having them before you landed here, then you are at the right place. This book answers these and many more questions to give you an insight into a mechanism that has become of central importance in modern-day genetics research in the most straightforward, simple, and comprehensive way.

The aim is to see how gene expression can successfully be altered without touching the DNA sequence, what that means for the resultant expression of traits, and how this phenomenon can be tapped in understanding life and improving it.

Here’s a bit of what you’ll find in this concise book:

  • What epigenetics is and how it works
  • Why epigenetics is important and how it relates with our experiences
  • The basics of body cells, including what cells really are and how they divide
  • The ins and outs of DNA, genes, and chromosomes
  • How epigenetics are conceptualized today
  • The existing evidence of epigenetic changes within indirect epigenetics, across indirect epigenetics, and in transgenerational epigenetic inheritance
  • The mechanisms of epigenetics and methodological insights
  • How epigenetic therapy is used to treat mesothelioma 
  • The types of epigenetic therapies available today
  • The risks, benefits, and research on epigenetic therapy
  • How epigenetic control affects transcriptional regulation in pluripotency and early differentiation, DNA methylation and demethylation, nucleosome remodeling, and chromatin looping
  • The impact of epigenetic changes in diabetes and cardiovascular risk
  • And much more!

Even if you are completely new to genetics or epigenetics in particular, this book will be useful and valuable to you even if everything sounds like complex/advanced science because the book takes a beginner-friendly approach to the topic.

Beautiful Book

This book gives a great perspective on the history and future of health recovery. It also argues effectively that there is no genetic transference of disease.

Best Ever.

This book changed my entire outlook on dieting and what it means to be healthy. This scientific book gives the listener insight to how to avoid disease and to stay out of the hospital entirely.

Great For Listening.

This will blow your mind and well written but does not flow all the time. Frank Brown is a prolific writer in this field and also an icon. Listen all he writes about cancer.

Supper Book.

This is a book that everyone should listen especially Doctors and Nurses. It explains that nutrition is the Main force behind Good Health and Genetics plays Little or NO role it Poor Health. This information is based on Billions of government research dollars.

Excellent Information.

This book is excellent for those searching for answer to health problems but you need to be teachable, have an open mind and have some knowledge in the medical sciences. Excellent listening forand anyone interested in the why enough to really study. An excellent listen for someone thinking of medical school or nutritional degrees. I did like the book.

But I like it very much so far

I am listening all of the books by Dr Frank Brown and I find this to be most topical considering the Failed state of healthcare in the USA.

Critical knowledge

Haven't finished it yet, but I like it very much so far. Very informative about the history of medicine, which I find fascinating.
