Some epigenetic modifications can be inherited, but this is not always the case.
Professor Olsen said: “We still do not know whether lactic acid marks are inherited.
“But if they are, it might be interesting to study the possible effect of e.g., diet, sleep and physical exercise on the epigenetic marks of the next generation.
“To answer such a question, you might start by studying e.g. mice or other animal models.”
The researchers are hopeful that in addition to expanding the range of potential cancer treatments, they can improve our understanding of epigenetics.
