Notes

Shocking new medical research shows that the chances of your child making a success  of his or her life may have begun long before their first bottle or tug at the breast. Researchers in the UK now believe that the first 1,000 days of life -- from the moment of conception to a child's second birthday -- are the most important indicators of determining how healthy and happy your kids are later on in life.

 

" ... By the end of the first 1,000 days the body is almost complete," said Professor David Barker, professor of clinical epidemiology at Southampton University, who has spent years working on this groundbreaking theory. "So what you have on your 1,000th day is what you will ever have."

 

Even chronic illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease, schizophrenia and obesity can be caused by what happened to an adult in utero, researchers say. "Chronic disease is going up in leaps and bounds, this is not a genetic chance." said Kent Thornburg, Professor of Cardiovascular Medicine in Oregon. "It's because the environment in the womb is getting worse. We know now that the first 1,000 days of life is the most sensitive period for determining lifelong health."
