In my Nutritional Biochemistry class, we are studying the effects of Epigenetics on health; epigenetics is the process of our diet and environment placing little chemical “flags” and “markers” on our the DNA that then impacts the gene’s expression and therefore our risk for developing certain diseases.
Preparing for class on Monday, I just watched this video this morning, and it motivated me to continue making healthful choices now and in the future. My greatest desire is to be a mother, and I want the best for my future children. My mother has changed me for the better, and I want to take care of myself so as to help them be healthy throughout their lives.
How amazing our bodies are! 🙂
