Early Life Nutrition Programming (ENP) & epigenetics: How can it shape the health for the future of your child?
Epigenetics means the study of genetics that is influenced by other external factors, particularly the environmental factors - nutrition. The diet influences the health of your child by at least 80 percent. Epigenetics explore the changes in our genes that are not caused by the DNA but by external factors. The Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) is affected by the information being sent to it, as influenced by the environmental factors - especially diet and lifestyle habits.
