Synopsis: A story that will change your ideas about health and disease. Full of revolutionary and iconoclastic ideas impacting all our lives and the lives of generations of children as yet unborn.

* How we are ushered into life will affect how we leave it.

* Diseases such as diabetes can be passed transgenerationally from mother to daughter and from daughter to granddaughter by nongenetic mechanisms.

* The idea that our health is programmed in the womb is supported by life-time health records of babies born at the beginning of this century which show that birthweight is closely linked to health in later life.

About the Author: Peter Nathanielsz holds three doctorates from Cambridge University, PhD, MD and ScD. He has taught at Cambridge University in England, and the University of California. He is James Law Professor of Reproductive Medicine at Cornell University.

Trained as an obstetrician, his research into the mysteries of life in the womb and the mechanisms of birth has been recognized by Fellowship ad eundem of the Royal College of Obstetricians in England. He has lectured at many Universities and Medical Schools throughout the world. In 1998 he presented a series of lectures in Europe as a Fulbright Distinguished Scholar.

Dr. Nathanielsz has developed a reputation as a communicator of science to high school students and general audiences in Japan, Australia, New Zealand, England, Holland, German, France, Scandinavia, Spain and Italy.

His work has been featured on British, American, and Canadian television and radio and extensively covered by national and international newspapers and magazines such as The Economist, American Scientist, Discover Magazine.
