This is a book about health. But it is also about our future. It is
about understanding our past, so that we can improve the health
of our own future and the next generation’s, in every regard. At
its core, the purpose of this book is to bring a greater awareness
of the critical importance of improving conditions in early life for
long-term health and longevity. In other words: how well we start
life will determine how well we finish it.
