Abstract

Individuals exposed to the Dutch Famine of 1944-45 during gestation have increased adiposity, which might be due to changes in energy intake, physical activity, or metabolic efficiency.We studied 357 persons born between January 1945 and March 1946 whose mothers experienced famine during or immediately preceding pregnancy, 298 persons born in the same 3 institutions during 1943 or 1947 (time controls), and 311 same-sex sibling controls. We obtained food frequency and physical activity data by questionnaire between 2003 and 2005 (mean age 58 y). We defined gestational exposure as exposure to a ration of
