Yoga and Meditation - Alter Genes
I just logged onto the site today, and saw this article.  http://www.eatsweatlive.com/2017/yoga-me...tudy-says/

I found this paragraph particularly interesting:

Quote:Environment and lifestyle can both affect which genes are turned on and off, and that can have real effects on disease risk, longevity and even which traits get passed on to future generations. Stressful events, for example, can activate the fight-or-flight response and trigger a chain reaction of stress-related changes in the body—including activating specific genes involved in making proteins that produce inflammation.

Its interesting just how much our environment can affect our bodies.
