CVD, diabetes mortality determined by nutrition during parents’ and grandparents’ slow growth period
Hold onto your socks for this one. This study evaluated times of feast and famine and whether this would have an impact on the risk for cardiovascular disease and diabetes along the male’s line of CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN. This answer? Definitely so. Low food availability = low risk. High food availability = high risk. The implications of this go beyond what most clinicians and people are willing to accept. With this in mind, what do you think will happen to the grand-kids of today’s obese children? Not to sound like a pessimist, at this time of the greatest knowledge of impacts on human health, our health is poorer than it ever has been. This will lead to a reduction in the life expectancy here in the US. If we keep at the same rate as we are now, medicating rather than addressing the true root of most chronic diseases, there is no way we can continue to life longer and longer lives.
