Extra nutrients given to mice turned down expression of a gene called Agouti, which affects fur color. This is important because scientists for the first time ever have shown precisely how nutritional supplementation to the mother can permanently alter gene expression in her offspring without altering the genes themselves.

Dr. Bruce Lipton is one of the leading cellular biologists in this area.
