luke1i1 Posted January 20, 2018 Share Posted January 20, 2018 Hi all I'm new to the forum so please be kind! I have a question (well a few really but I'll start with this one) which I was hoping you fine people might shed some light on. I have been reading about epigenetics which from what I understand relates to how our genes have an impact on our future generations. My question is this, if what we do in life affects our genes (which is what I understand epigenetics is about) then does this mean that if we undertake a specific occupation in life (such as working in healthcare) would it alter our genes so that our future offspring (and thier offspring and so on) may also be more inclined to work in a similar occupation due to their genes somehow predisposing them to a feeling of wanting to work in this setting? I know it may sound mad but it's something I have been trying to establish for some time. Thanks in advance Luke Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
