"Epigenetic harm"

Developments in the emerging field of epigenetics have shown that lifestyle habits such as eating unhealthy food can have an impact on future generations’ health. In this paper, I focus on the ethics of intergenerational aspects of epigenetics and argue that parents impose harm upon their future children by consuming unhealthy food and therefore they wrong their future children.
