In biology, and specifically genetics, epigenetics is the study of changes in gene expression or cellular phenotype, caused by mechanisms other than changes in the underlying DNA sequence – hence the name epi- (Greek: επί- over, above, outer) -genetics, some of which have been shown to be heritable.

Sometimes people do weird shit, like crunch ice cubes when low on iron. What if this is a misdirected adaptation originally developed to make anemics eat more bone marrow?
This subreddit is chartered as a place to explore an evolutionary approach to health and medicine.

Human Biological Diversity (HBD)
Human Biological Diversity (HBD) is the study of human genetics and how they are responsible for our inclinations, behaviors, preferences, abilities, intelligence, life span, and other attributes.
Where "normal" human society considers the human mind to be programmable, HBD starts from the other perspective, which is that genetics is the cause and behaviors the effect, even if we are all in denial of how little control we have over ourselves.
HBD explores evolution's many branches in the human species, including race, ethnicity, caste, class and family. Also includes race realism.

To encourage a variety of content, the top text/self post of the day, by net upvotes, is also eligible for an Award ^1 (More info).
Don't be put off if the topic doesn't instantly interest you. Even the most mundane topics can have very interesting trivia. We've linked with /r/musicthemetime to post music under the daily topic.
