Just when I think that I understand something, new research comes and amends my knowledge, sometimes refining, sometimes refuting what I once knew.
So when I learned about evolution and Genetics in the medical school, and I thought I understood it well enough to disseminate my knowledge, I am now learning even more. Here is the case of Genetics. We talked about it at length one night at Perkins. I now want to tell you about epigenetics. So it may not take thousands of generation to evolve as we may have thought at one time. New data suggest much faster changes. Faster, as in only two of three generations. How much a mother’s baby will weigh depends on what her grand grandmother’s diet was like. We will look at the latest research and see the implications on future generations will be.
After the talk, you will have basic vocabulary and principles to become informed consumer of medical research. I hope you can join me on this journey. And bring your questions.
Do you enjoy rational discussion, logic, and learning? What about hanging out with like-minded people who also enjoy these things?
Questioning what we are told is an incredible attribute that humans have and we should exercise it by encouraging critical thought!
Anyone is welcome to join, but this group is intended for those who want to question dogma and learn from others, while having fun with people who do the same.
Come and join us for fun nights in the midtown area to see live music, have a beer, a delicious nibble, or pass out fliers next to evangelists in Westport that have a message of peace rather than threats of Hell and fear of pleasure! Let's enjoy the one life we have and let others do the same! :)
