The Transgenerational Transmission of Trauma

with Thomas Verny
Converging and replicated evidence from experimental and clinical studies indicate that, before their offspring is even conceived, a parent’s life experiences involving food, drugs, exposure to toxic products and stress can affect the development and health not only of their children, but even of their grandchildren.

One of the most valuable lessons that epigenetics has taught us is that our social lives, our interactions with others and ourselves can change our gene expression with a rapidity, breadth, and depth previously unknown. We are architects of our own lives more than we realise.

In this presentation, Dr. Thomas R. Verny, keynote speaker at the 2019 Baby Conference in Bristol, UK delivers an overview of his conference talk.
