Lifestyle Epigenomics, a new volume in the Translational Epigenetics series, comprehensively details the interplay between lifestyle factors and epigenetic modifications associated with the onset of noncommunicable diseases and aging, shedding light on potential preventive and therapeutic strategies for disease from an epigenomics perspective. Here, more than 35 international experts in the field consider how lifestyle choices or habits can condition or prevent disease, along with tools for new research, from bioinformatics methodology to non-invasive sampling.

Early, foundational chapters are followed by all-inclusive sections on epigenetic machinery in health and disease; dietary factors and epigenetics; adiposity and physical activity and epigenetics; psychological stress, social environment, toxins and contaminants exposure effects on epigenetics; and transgenerational and childhood epigenetics. To support understanding, each chapter includes a summary and key points lists, terms and definition, as well as research case studies outlining core components of recent studies, detailing their conditions, research techniques involved, and outcomes.
