An interesting article.
An additional question. Has anyone seen something like this in regard
to pregnancy? Something like the relative risk of health and nutrition
items during pregnancy on the health of the fetus, which have the most
impact, etc -
For example, smoking, alcohol use, lack of weight gain, folic acid
prior to pregnancy, fish contaminants, etc.
Thanks for any directoin you may be able to give.

A colleague posted this message to the list. Thought you might
find it interesting given that underweight is the first risk listed and
obesity is the last.
