  • Epigenetics and Postnatal Health

    Interesting article at Discovery Medicine (full text):

    Developmental processes, acting in part through epigenetic mechanisms, can have echoes on structure and physiology throughout the rest of life and possibly across generations. Consideration of the underlying mechanisms and their implications has led to convergence between the broader biological and evolutionary disciplines and biomedical research.

      I beg to disagree Cillakat (have you read your Journal lately? ), but thanks for the compliment

        It was a great article btw - what else is there to say? Epigenetics. Vitamin D. Biologically appropriate diets. +1,000,000

        I can't wait until someone calls Vitamin D pleiotrophic (speaking of genes). Hmm, I should see if someone has.

        Voila! They're talking about VDH not D3 but still. Cool

            I was looking for this info today and was saddened to find the original link SS posted, defunct.

            Anyway, after some hunting around, I found what he was originally referencing:

            Echoes of the Past: Evolution, Development, Health and Disease - - Peter Gluckman - Discovery Medicine

            It is very well worth taking some time to read.
