What if I told you that 1 out of every 5 pregnant women in the United States goes to bed hungry? Now, what if I told you that because they went to bed hungry their babies are now prone to have a chronic disease as an adult and, not only that, but their grandchildren as well. This unfortunate fact is a huge problem.

Dr. Mark Reeves (Host)
Surgical Oncologist
On the other side of the spectrum, 1 out of every 3 pregnant women is overweight. This again has the same negative effect. Their children and their grandchildren will most likely have a chronic disease.

Patricia Kelikani (Host)
Dr. Lawrence D. Longo of Loma Linda University Health is one of the world’s most respected specialists in developmental physiology.

Dr. Mark Reeves (Host)
His research on maternal health has been funded by the National Institutes of Health for the last 50 years. Today, we all know that smoking while pregnant has a negative effect on a child. Well, we can thank Dr. Longo for that.
His most recent research has been focused on nutrition in pregnant women.

Dr. Lawrence D. Longo
Professor of physiology and obstetrics & gynecology
It’s a very sobering reality to think in terms of how something that happened during one pregnancy can have effects throughout several generations. One finds a host of diseases related to the cardiovascular system, hypertension, heart attacks, strokes, to aspects of metabolism, type 2 diabetes, and now the whole panoply of neuropsychiatric disorders which are showing up.

Patricia Kelikani (Host)
Dr. Longo and his team of researchers have studied how protein deprivation during the course of gestation will have these effects on one’s health.

Dr. Lawrence D. Longo
I think that as a society we should give more attention to pregnancy and early life in development.

Patricia Kelikani (Host)
Now that we know what the consequences can be as our children become adults, we can’t stress the health advice enough.

Dr. Mark Reeves (Host)
Eat a balanced diet with enough protein and nutrients; take a prenatal vitamin every day with folic acid and DHA; and if you’re overweight, try as hard as you can to get a healthy weight by the time you conceive.

Dr. Lawrence D. Longo
To quote one of my friend’s at the National Institutes of Health, every pregnant uterus is a center for excellence.

Patricia Kelikani (Host)
There’s the tip for the day on how you can live healthier, longer.

The Importance of Exercise

Exercise and physical activity are important for everybody’s overall well-being. In our society, where we work jobs that have us sitting at a computer all day long, movement is especially important.
