Low birth weight and cardiovascular disease: myth or reality?

Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperJournal articleResearchpeer-review

The Barker hypothesis proposes a link between low birth weight and adulthood cardiovascular disease. Recent studies have cast doubt on this hypothesis whilst others have proposed an effect of maternal birth weight that may extend to future generations. Thus, the debate on the effect of birth weight in cardiovascular disease continues.
