Epigenetics change rapidly in first year of life

Our results show that our genes are changing rapidly when we are infants. They also confirm our previous finding that genetically identical twins may be epigenetically different at birth and that there may be some flexibility about how we develop in early childhood." The researchers' next focus will be on specific diet and lifestyle factors of mums and babies that may have the capacity to change their epigenetics and possibly influence future health.
