Based on his five-year research study on mice, the author presents a convincing argument for reducing dietary fat, not just during pregnancy, but throughout the childbearing years. Walker's study showed that a high-fat diet during pregnancy may program the unborn child for cancer later in life; here, Walker reviews these findings and provides information on preventative dietary management. The information Walker presents varies from a simple method for limiting fat intake to fairly technical dietary analysis. Although he does not include recipes, Walker does give some commonsense recommendations for low-fat meals. There is much available on nutrition during pregnancy, but this book fills a gap by presenting the link between a high-fat diet and cancer later in life.
