The Epigenetics of Aging
For decades, researchers have hunted for genetic mutations -- changes in the DNA sequence -- that contribute to or cause diseases like cancer and psychiatric problems.  Scientists have learned that epigenetics – the result of external factors impact on your DNA-- -- may play a role as important as genetics in some diseases. Research oncologist Stephen Baylin unveils what epigenetics can reveal about associated diseases often encountered in aging.
