Environmental epigenetics and human health care

Human is exposed to a huge number of environmental influences
that have effects on epigenetic mechanisms. Epigenetics
is a field in biology that focuses on inherited changes in the
gene expression caused by mechanisms other than changes in
the DNA sequence. Environmental epigenetics describes how
environmental factors affect cellular epigenetics and, hence,
the human health. A foundational goal for the people is to
improve their health, which typically includes positive changes
in lifestyle and especially diet.
