This is truly revealing about health in today's world. It is without a doubt that our well being and health begins within the womb. Some of the conditions we observe in midlife and later life began much earlier on as a foetus. Regardless of this, nutrition does affect every aspect of our lives , and as such we should not be wholly dependent on medications but rather on a balanced diet.
Some good points in there and definitely written in quite an unbiased way but still follows a reductionist approach when it comes to nutrition and completely ignores the fact that nutrients dont work in isolation and dont follow a linear causality. A good and easy read but needs a much broader point of view than the traditional A causes B and B causes C approach.
