Goodbye, genetic blueprint. . . . The first book for general readers on the game-changing field of epigenetics.The burgeoning new science of epigenetics offers a cornucopia of insightsâsome comforting, some frightening. For example, the male fetus may be especially vulnerable to certain common chemicals in our environment, in ways that damage not only his own sperm but also the sperm of his sons.

Indeed, epigenetic engineering is the future of medicine. 18 illustrations
