Our growth and maturation are controlled by specific gene sets that are choreographed events in conjunction with environmental cues, depending on the period of life at which they are triggered or suppressed. Any type of epigenetic factor that affects genes or gene expression networks during a person's life can lead to an imbalance in the regulatory process and may have a lasting impact (1).
Our previous articles discussed a brief overview of epigenetics and how the most common modifications. In this article, we will share various interventions which modulate epigenetic regulation. Put away the cigarettes, alcohol, lazy boy, and let's go!
The 2023 Exposome Day webinar topic of discussion was “Women’s Health over 40: Menopause and Environmental Exposures.” The webinar was moderated by Dr. Sarah Evans, Assistant Professor at Environmental Medicine and Public Health, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.
Dr. Sarah welcomed the speakers and audience attending Exposome Day 2023. She explained that “the webinar speakers are leading environmental health and exposomic scientists. They will discuss what is known and the research gaps regarding environmental exposures—from chemicals, nutrition, air pollution, and non-chemical exposures such as stress. They will also focus on the transition to menopause and what women can do to reduce harmful exposures.”
Every day an American is potentially exposed to more than 80,000 toxic chemicals, yet their impact on neuro-diseases is not well understood.
Studies have shown that exposure to toxic chemicals in the early stages of life could have permanent consequences for neurodevelopment and neurodegeneration in later life. With advanced research in neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders, it is now clear that genetic risk factors cannot fully explain them.
In today’s article, we are going to explore the well-known, indispensable, and now kind of infamous neurotransmitter dopamine. As with gamma-aminobutyric acid (or GABA) and serotonin, dopamine can’t cross the blood-brain barrier.
