Many of the risks for chronic diseases — including obesity, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and dementia — can be traced back to your first 1,000 days of existence, from the moment you were conceived. The roots of these vulnerabilities may extend back even further, to experiences your parents and grandparents had — and perhaps even beyond. Judith Finlayson, author of the new book--You Are What Your Grandparents Ate: What You Need to Know about Nutrition, Experience, Epigenetics & the Origins of Chronic Disease-- joined us to share how the latest research is shining a new light on nature and nurture.
