Evidence for programming by nutrition is established in animals, in whom brief pre- or postnatal nutritional manipulations may program adult size, metabolism, blood lipids, diabetes, blood pressure, obesity, atherosclerosis, learning, behavior and life span. Human epidemiological data link potential markers of early nutrition size at birth or in infancy to cardiovascular disease and its risk factors in adulthood.
Epub Jun Early nutrition programming of long-term health. Increasing evidence from the EU Project EARNEST and many other investigators demonstrates that early nutrition and lifestyle have long-term effects on later health and the risk of common non-communicable diseases known as 'developmental programming'.
Because of the increasing public health importance and the transgenerational nature of the problem, obesity and associated disorders are the focus of the new EU funded project 'EarlyNutrition'. Currently, three key hypotheses have been defined: Using existing cohort studies, ongoing and novel intervention studies and a basic science programme to investigate those key hypotheses, project EarlyNutrition will provide the scientific foundations for evidence-based recommendations for optimal nutrition considering long-term health outcomes, with a focus on obesity and related disorders.
Scientific and technical expertise in placental biology, epigenetics and metabolomics will provide understanding at the cellular and molecular level of the relationships between early life nutritional status and the risk of later adiposity.
This will help refine strategies for intervention in early life to prevent obesity.Early Nutrition Academy: Introduction to science of early nutrition and metabolic programming, aims of the academy, trainings and post-graduate courses.
Welcome! On behalf of the EarlyNutrition Project and the Early Nutrition Academy (ENA), the Organizing Committee was delighted to welcome the participants to “The Power of Programming - Developmental Origins of Adiposity and Long-term Health” that took place October , in Munich, Germany.
Worldwide, EarlyNutrition is the largest project investigating programming effects for health in later life. Researchers from 35 institutions in 12 European countries, the United States and Australia have joined forces to study how early nutrition programming and lifestyle factors impact the rates of obesity and related disorders.
Increasing evidence from the EU Project EARNEST and many other investigators demonstrates that early nutrition and lifestyle have long-term effects on later health and the risk of common non-communicable diseases (known as 'developmental programming').
