    Epigenetic interventions can modulate gene expression, so we can influence genes for the better (or worse). As for membrane hyperpermeability (leaky gut in common parlance), there are reams of peer reviewed scientific research to support it's existence, contrary to the TED assertion above. It is time to move on and tackle this auto immunity pandemic.
