Trauma Passed on to Children's Genes

ABOUT TIME!


Study of Holocaust survivors finds trauma passed on to children's genes
New finding is first example in humans of the theory of epigenetic inheritance: the idea that environmental factors can affect the genes of your children


I’ve been waiting for this. 
So, the Transatlantic Slave Trade, years of bondage during slavery, the Jim Crow and Civil Rights period, and current events affecting African Descent individuals throughout the Caribbean and America’s has left a genetic impression that has and continuing to have traumatic affect upon us, that many show signs of PTSD from generation to generation that needs to be addressed to move forward?

In the case of resiliency, some individual are more resilient then others and can bounce back immediately and recover from stress and other disruptions while others are greatly affected and require long term assistance or subsistence until fully recovered by initially becoming aware of the trauma and its effects. 

Interesting hypothesis.  What say you?
