Before his joint session speech to Congress on Feb. 28, Donald Trump called for a “compromise” on immigration. This move came in light of increased U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids and deportations.

In the last decade, findings within epigenetics have been generating big waves far beyond scientific circles. It’s fairly easy to understand why.
