Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0521834570, Hardcover)New discoveries indicate that the most important interactions in determining our fate occur before birth. These processes are an evolutionary echo of mechanisms which allowed our ancestors to survive as hunter-gatherers. Two of the world's leading pioneering authorities reveal exciting insights into a rapidly emerging field. They suggest new ways of protecting the health of the fetus, infant and adult and cover important triggers for many emerging diseases such as obesity, diabetes and heart disease.

"New discoveries reveal how crucial interactions that determine our destiny occur before birth, when our genes interact with their environment as the embryo and fetus develop. The new concepts in this book are crucial to understanding the public health burden in societies undergoing rapid transition from poverty to affluence. They add an important new dimension to evolutionary theory. Synthesising developmental biology, evolutionary history, medical science, public health and social policy, this is a ground-breaking account by two of the world's leading pioneers in this emerging field."--BOOK JACKET.
