The Greek prefix “epi” means “on top of” or “over”, so the term “Epigenetics” literally describes regulation at a level above, or in addition to, those of genetic mechanisms.
Epigenetics” refers to covalent modification of DNA, protein, or RNA, resulting in changes to the function and/or regulation of these molecules, without altering their primary sequences. Gene expression can be altered by toxins, emotions, environmental factors etc. These gene regulation can have major impact on the health of individuals, like cancer, autoimmune diseases etc. By changing the epigenetic “switches” to its original state, can ultimately unlock the potential of the DNA to again, make healthy protein
