The First 1000 Days: A Legacy for Life.
Could adult health be determined by our environment and nutrition in the first thousand days of life, or even many years earlier?
In August 2011 the UK’s BBC Radio 4 broadcast three podcasts, The First 1000 Days: A Legacy for Life. In this three part podcast, Dr Mark Porter examines the increasingly strong body of scientific evidence that supports the theory that adult health is partly determined by the nutrition and environment experienced in the first 1000 days of life. He talks to scientists who believe that this ‘lifecourse’ approach will find the cause of many adult diseases especially chronic diseases such as obesity, heart disease and diabetes.
