VIDEO: Children Of Smoker Fathers May Have Increased Tolerance For Drugs And Chemicals Due To Epigenetic Changes

mice born to fathers who were exposed to nicotine inherited enhanced chemical tolerance and drug clearance abilities. If the same proves true in humans, it could mean that children of smokers may have enhanced tolerance for certain chemical procedures, su
