This watershed reference presents epidemiological, clinical, and experimental evidence that cardiovascular disease, Type 2 diabetes, and chronic lung disease originate through adaptations to the intrauterine environment. These new findings suggest that major chronic diseases in adult life may be prevented by improving the nutrition of girls and young women to promote healthy fetal development during pregnancy.
