Reviews

Judith Finlayson draws upon the groundbreaking work of late epidemiologist David Barker in this fascinating and eye-opening treatise on how a wide variety of chronic diseases (heart disease, diabetes, obesity etc.) are linked not only to current lifestyle but to such other factors as stress, environmental toxins, and even, per the title, one's grandparents' diet.--Publisher's Weekly (08/13/2019)
