Developmental origins of health and disease is an area of research founded by David J.P. Barker, M.D., based on his discovery that people who were born small had higher rates of heart disease. We now know that we can prevent chronic diseases – like diabetes, heart problems, even obesity – in future generations if women are surrounded by whole foods and opportunities to lead healthy lives before, during and after pregnancy.
Dr. Barker wrote this book to provide the public with the knowledge and tools to improve the health of future generations. Like Dr. Barker, the OHSU Bob and Charlee Moore Institute for Nutrition & Wellness is committed to sharing this knowledge in ways that reshape our health and, one day, eliminate chronic diseases altogether. We are grateful for the generous support from Bob and Charlee Moore, founders of Bob’s Red Mill.
“History will show that David Barker’s discoveries changed the face of medicine.” -- Kent Thornburg, PhD, Professor and Director, Bob and Charlee Moore Institute for Nutrition & Wellness, Oregon Health & Science University
