Question:

Can you guess the age of a person by looking at their blood?

Gabriela M.
Answer:

Yes, as you age the red blood cell and white blood cell counts decrease and telomeres (found at the ends of chromosomes) shorten. These age related changes to blood and cellular composition allow you to closely estimate the age of a person.

Can life experiences of a parent effect their child's genetics?

Inactive
Gabriela M.
Answer:

Research in people has shown that some life experiences can alter the way certain genes are expressed, resulting in lifelong changes to the child. One such study showed that children of parents that experienced famine were more likely to develop obesity, diabetes, and schizophrenia. The scientific field which studies how life experiences alter gene expression is termed epigenetics.
