Epigenetics is when the environment, or in this case, behavior and consumption of alcohol can change DNA expression. In itself, it does not affect gametes, it is simply a change in expression (it becomes available to transcription proteins). Part of the discussion describes how some people may be more suceptible to these DNA expression changes, and may explain hereditary addiction. Possibly it is a mechanism to keep the brain in homeostasis.

That typo is so epic it's almost not worth correcting. Literally how I would mis-pronounce the word.
