London: If the extra pounds you are saddled with don`t go away no matter what you do, the reason maybe your mother.Research suggests a mother`s lifestyle can affect the health of the unborn and programme his or her DNA in the womb.Her diet, the way she exercises, whether she smokes or drinks alcohol and even which pollutants she is exposed to can alter the DNA of her unborn child, the journal Public Library of Science Medicine reports.The latest evidence for the theory comes from researchers at Newcastle University who analysed the genes of children aged between nine and 11 years, according to the Daily Mail.
