The foetal susceptibility hypothesis suggests the nourishment an embryo receives from its a mother is a major determinant of health in later life. In this film, Professor Randy Jirtle tells the story of his ground-breaking experiment at Duke University that provided the first ever scientific evidence of the causal influence of maternal diet on offspring health prior to birth. It showed how the genetic destiny of an embryo can be altered by changes in maternal diet and it is now one of the most widely quoted scientific studies of all time.
