Question

Does diet affect one' s genes?

Answer

Diet probably does not affect your genes, but your genes and diet will play a role in the manifestation of a condition ( ie. obesity and diabetes) . For example, the way we metabolize caffeine is the result of your genes, but your gene would not be affected by that.
