You are what your parents and grandparents ate. Future generations will be affected by what we eat, what we don't eat, the drugs we use, etc. Scientists are now looking to see if there is a connection between diet and drugs and diseases such as cancer and conditions like ADHD and Autism.
"Once nurture seemed clearly distinct from nature. Now it appears that our diets and lifestyles can change the expression of our genes. How? By influencing a network of chemical switches within our cells collectively known as the epigenome."
