 Recent scientific data suggests that low birthweight babies have a 5 times higher risk of developing cardiovascular disease later in life. In light of these discoveries, many politicians are still pushing to cut programs promoting maternal health, such as WIC - Women, Infants and Children program. Bread and Roses host Ashley Thirstrup brings you a special lecture by Annie Murphy Paul, author of Origins: How the Nine Months Before Birth Shape the Rest of Our Lives. She'll tell us how she ventures into the laboratories of fetal researchers, interviews experts from around the world, and delves into the rich history of ideas about how we are shaped before birth.
