What happens after we eat? The power of nutrients is still a mystery. We all know we are what we eat, but we are now realizing that we are what we ate--as babies! My research explores how early nutrition can permanently change metabolism, increasing the risk for disease later in life. More specifically, we delve into the role of amino acids and vitamins in liver and intestinal metabolism and how early nutritional stresses can program metabolism.
