Schoeni discusses AJPH article on early childhood links to mid-life health

a PSC In The News reference, 2011

"Early origins of chronic mid-life diseases: Low birth weight and poverty have long-term effects" - Medical Xpress. 10/21/2011.

Bob Schoeni and Rucker Johnson found that low birth-weight children (under 5.5 lbs) were much more likely than their counterparts to have asthma, hypertension, diabetes, stroke, heart attack, and heart disease as adults. Those who grew up in poverty were also more likely to have one of these fatal, debilitating conditions by age 50. Their study is published in the American Jounal of Public Health.
