Study: A little exercise can change your DNA for good!

7-3-13: Just rec'd this article and since I just did a health talk on how we can change our genes with lifestyle, it caught my eye! Check this article out...it's gives a very good explanation about how exercise can change gene expression (called "epigenetics"). This is a new and exciting field, and I believe we will be hearing more about "lifestyle epigenetics" and "lifestyle epigentic therapy".

For a cool interactive website that shows just how changing the epigenetics changes the DNA structure and turns on and off a cell, go to this URL:
