Environment and Disease: The Ghosts in Your Genes
Loucks Auditorium, Salem Public Library, 585 Liberty Street SE, Salem
Dr. Michael Skinner of Washington State University will provide a general overview of endocrine disruptors. He will talk about how his research has shown that environmental factors change the expression of our DNA - but don’t change the underlying DNA sequences - and how these lasting effects can be passed on from generation to generation.
