Abstract

The most important criticism about research on early-life environment and later-life health and mortality is concerned with how this research is interpreted (for an overview see Kuh & Davey Smith 1993). It has been argued that the strong correlation between early environment and adult mortality may simply be an effect of continued deprivation over the whole life course rather than of factors that act early in life (Ben-Shlomo & Davey Smith 1991).
