It is an important field because it allows us to understand how our environment can cause changes to our genetic expression during our lifetime.

In simple terms, it tells us that our family history is not our only destiny. There are other factors that can determine the development of a disease, and how severe the disease becomes.

The studies show that the season — or more accurately the temperature — may impact the severity of diseases. There are other studies that are looking at how the foods we eat can change the course or our disease.

Epigenetics is an exciting field in medicine today.

For now we can say that during the warmer months we feel healthier and our genes are confirming that, too.
