Hear what Dr. Buttar and Robert Scott Bell have to say about this article on the November 13, 2017  Advanced Medicine Show A recent animal study published in the Science journal has revealed that genetic changes caused by environmental factors may be passed down from one generation to another. According to a team of researchers at the European Molecular Biology Organisation (EMBO) in Spain, the genetic changes may even be inherited by up to 14 generations thereafter. The experts have examined the genetically engineered nematode roundworms called C. elegans in order to carry out the study....

Environment, Not Just Genetics, At Play In Autism

Posted on Sep 6, 2011 in Autism, Health & Wellness

By Julie Steenhuysen CHICAGO (Reuters) – Environmental factors may play a greater role in autism than previously thought, tipping the scale away from a strict focus on genetics, two studies released on Monday suggest. In one, a team at Stanford University compared cases of autism in identical and fraternal twins and found that fraternal twins — who share only half of the same genes — have unusually high rates of autism, suggesting that factors other than genetics may be triggering the disease. In another, researchers at health insurer Kaiser Permanente found mothers of...
