Undernutrition in the Womb

Undernutrition in the womb has many surprising life-long health outcomes. To better understand undernutrition, we’ll review the scientific studies generated by one of the most amazing natural experiments in history—the Dutch Hunger War. For one year, an entire population was severely malnourished. After that year, food was available again. This natural experiment gives us a window on undernutrition in the womb and its role in our health.
