Cardiovascular diseases have traditionally been viewed as a condition of aging individuals, and increasing focus has turned to its developmental origins. Birthweight has been related to cardiovascular disease risk. According to fetal origins of adult disease (FOAD) hypothesis, risk factors from intrauterine environmental exposures affect the fetal development and increase the risk of chronic diseases in adult life.

Keywords:Cardiovascular Diseases; Barker’s Hypothesis; Birth Weight
