    You have often heard “You are what you eat,” but according to research from Baylor College of Medicine, the new phrase could be “You are what you are exposed to.” New research shows that, in animal models, the liver epigenome is permanently changed when exposed to certain chemicals in the environment early in life when the liver is developing, making the organism more vulnerable to diet-triggered metabolic dysfunction later in life.
