Have you ever wondered why identical twins begin to look subtly different with age? Or why two people respond differently to the same environmental exposure? And did you know that most common diseases are a result of both your genes and your environment? In fact, only a small number of diseases are a result of just a single mutation in a gene.

While at first it may seem like all health answers lie within our genetic makeup, a new field of science encourages you to look further to find answers.

Beyond The DNA-Your Informative Guide to Epigenetics & Health illustrates how epigenetics works and what it means for you in a fun and interactive way.
