It is a study of the nutritional conditions or factors which affects the DNA indirectly by modifying epigenetic factors.
Nutrients can reverse or change epigenetic phenomena such as DNA methylation and histone modifications, thereby modifying the expression of critical genes associated with physiologic and pathologic processes, including embryonic development, aging, and carcinogenesis.It appears that nutrients and bioactive food components can influence epigenetic phenomena either by directly inhibiting enzymes that catalyze DNA methylation or histone modifications or by altering the availability of substrates necessary for those enzymatic reactions.
In this regard, nutritional epigenetics has been viewed as an attractive tool to prevent pediatric developmental diseases and cancer as well as to delay aging-associated processes. In recent years, epigenetics has become an emerging issue in a broad range of diseases such as type 2 diabetes mellitus, obesity, inflammation, and neurocognitive disorders.

An epigenome consists of a record of the chemical changes to the DNA and histone proteins of an organism; these changes can be passed down to an organism′s offspring. Changes to the epigenome can result in changes to the structure of chromatin and changes to the function of the genome.

Epigenetic phenomena are defined as heritable mechanisms that establish and maintain mitotically stable patterns of gene expression without modifying the base sequence of DNA. The major epigenetic features of mammalian cells include DNA methylation, post-translational histone modifications and RNA-based mechanisms including those controlled by small non-coding RNAs (miRNAs).
The term cardiovascular epigenetics refers to heritable changes in cardiac gene expression (active versus inactive genes) that does not involve changes to the underlying DNA sequence, a change in phenotype without a change in genotype. The impact of epigenetic mechanisms in cardiovascular pathophysiology is now emerging as a major player in the interface between genotype to phenotype variability.
An important aspect of epigenetic mechanisms is that they are potentially reversible and may be influenced by nutritional-environmental factors and through gene–environment interactions, all of which have an important role in complex, multifactorial diseases such as those affecting the cardiovascular system. Gene expression regulation through the interplay of DNA methylation and histone modifications is well-established, although the knowledge about the function of epigenetic signatures in cardiovascular disease is still largely unexplored

Epigenetic changes in cancer cells not only provide novel targets for drug therapy but also offer unique prospects for cancer diagnostics. The three main approaches to assess the epigenetic state of individual gene loci are to (1) measure gene expression, (2) determine histone modifications and chromatin protein composition and (3) analyze promoter DNA methylation status. Chromatin immunoprecipitation has been an extremely useful research tool to analyze chromatin protein composition and modifications.
However, it has not advanced sufficiently yet to become a clinically useful diagnostic method, in contrast to serum proteomics by mass spectrometry, which is progressing rapidly in clinical feasibility studies. Gene expression microarray analysis has proved to be a powerful method for identifying novel subclasses of cancer and predicting clinical outcome or response to therapy. However, gene expression analysis is generally not viewed as epigenetic analysis, in part because mechanistic understanding of gene regulation evolved from studies of transcriptional control by transcription factors, which does not necessarily involve mitotically stable epigenetic change, although the fields of gene regulation and epigenetics are moving closer.
The major interest in cancer epigenetics as a diagnostic tool is in localized epigenetic silencing. The use of gene expression microarray studies to identify non-transcribed genes as candidates for promoter CpG island hypermethylation has had limited success, because lack of gene expression can stem from other causes aside from epigenetic silencing. For the most part, cancer epigenetics has relied on measurements of CpG island DNA hypermethylation.
DNA methylation markers are used in cancer diagnostics for both disease classification and disease detection. As a classification tool, CpG island hypermethylation is generally analyzed on sufficient quantities of primary tissue such as a surgically resected tumor sample.
The DNA methylation status of individual gene promoters can be used for general prognosis or to predict response to a particular therapy. There have been numerous reports describing an association between hypermethylation of individual genes and overall clinical outcome (prognosis) for various types of cancer. Individual methylation markers have also been linked to breast cancer metastasis.
In particular, methylation of the E-cadherin (CDH1) promoter appears to be required for invasion and metastasis. It is more difficult to make a convincing case that a DNA methylation marker is a predictor of response to a specific therapy, and not just a general prognostic marker of clinical outcome, independent of therapy.
One of the best cases has been made for hypermethylation of the O6-methylguanine methyltransferase (MGMT) promoter, which is associated with increased survival in glioma patients treated with alkylating agents. Melanoma cells with acquired resistance to the antineoplastic alkylating compound fotemustine, by repeated in vitro drug exposure, were shown to have reactivated the MGMT gene.

The imprinting epigenetics are defined by the inheritance of epigenetic tags from cell generation to cell generation and from the parents to their offspring.
The epigenetic tags on imprinted genes usually stay put for the life of the organism. But they are reset during egg and sperm formation. Regardless of whether they came from mom or dad, certain genes are always silenced in the egg, and others are always silenced in the sperm

Epigenetics refers to covalent modifications of DNA and core histones that regulate gene activity without altering DNA sequence. To date, the best-characterized DNA modification associated with the modulation of gene activity is methylation of cytosine residues within CpG dinucleotides.

Aging is associated with a wide range of human disorders, including cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular, and neurodegenerative diseases. Aging is associated with profound epigenetic changes, resulting in alterations of gene expression and disturbances in broad genome architecture and the epigenomic landscape.
The potential reversibility of these epigenetic changes that occur as a hallmark of aging offers exciting opportunities to alter the trajectory of age-related diseases.
