Lullaby Theories: Same Same But Different

Coat of Arms

Inspired to explore science from the perspective of toddlers, we discuss epigenetics with our three-year-old identical, twin daughters in this episode from “Lullaby Theories.” Simple and yet elegant, the science behind gene modification comes easily to these identical twins who notice daily how Same Same but Different they are from each other.

“Certain circumstances in life can cause genes to be silenced or expressed over time. In other words, they can be turned off (becoming dormant) or turned on (becoming active) … What you eat, where you live, who you interact with, when you sleep, how you exercise, even aging – all of these can eventually cause chemical modifications around the genes that will turn those genes on or off over time.” – whatisepigenetics.com
