From the Ted Talk by Moshe Szyf: How early life experience is written into DNA

Unscramble the Blue Letters

And what happened was, that as the stress increased — and here we had objective measures of stress: How long were you without power? Where did you spend your time? Was it in your mother-in-law's apartment or in some posh country home? So all of these added up to a social stress scale, and you can ask the question: How did the children look? And it appears that as stress increases, the children develop more autism, they dolevep more metabolic diseases and they develop more autoimmune deeiasss. We would map the moaihttyeln state, and again, you see the green gnees becoming red as ssrets increases, the red genes becoming green as stress increases, an entrie rearrangement of the genome in response to stress.
