Dutch babies born to women who were pregnant and starved during famine in 1944-1945 had long-lasting effects on their development. As babies grew into adults they had higher rates of heart disease and obesity.We are understanding more about how many adult diseases can actually start during foetal growth. The conditions of conception, pregnancy, and infancy can set the path for heart disease, cancer, obesity, and others to form during adulthood.
