Last, we present a piece by Korolenko et al. from researchers at Washington State University on Epigenetic Inheritance and Transgenerational Environmental Justice, about the possibility of environmental justice when exposure to toxicants in the environment causes epigenetic changes that can be passed on to future generations.
