Epigenetic Research: Jet Fuel, Plastics Exposures Cause Disease in Later Generations; Reproductive Diseases, Obesity

generational epigenetics

The study, said Skinner, “provides additional support for the possibility that environmental toxicants can promote the epigenetic transgenerational inheritance of disease.”

“Your great-grandmothers exposures during pregnancy may cause disease in you, while you had no exposure,” he said. “This is a non-genetic form of inheritance not involving DNA sequence, but environmental impacts on DNA chemical modifications. This is the first set of studies to show the epigenetic transgenerational inheritance of disease such as obesity, which suggests ancestral exposures may be a component of the disease development.”
