EPIGENETICS!
You can’t change your DNA, but your
experiences and environment affect how
“epi” = above or on
Epigenetics = above genetics

EPIGENETICS
•What is a typical dinner meal that would be served at your house?
•How is it prepared (take-out, cooked from scratch, from a box, etc.)?

•What is a typical dinner meal that your great-grandparents may have had
(1940’s)?
•How was it prepared?
•What are some differences in the food we eat compared to past
generations?
•What are some differences in the way the food is prepared?
•How may these differences be affecting us?
•Could what your grandparents ate, be affecting you?
