'The environment could spin the dials on “big sectors of genes, right across the genome” – and that an individual’s social environment might exert a particularly powerful effect. Who you hung out with and how they behaved, in short, could dramatically affect which of your genes spoke up and which stayed quiet – and thus change who you were.' I was pilloried for writing this eight years ago. My has time changed.
