The amount of food a boy eats in the years before puberty influences his grandchildren’s risk of diabetes, a small Swedish study suggests.

They found that males in areas with a surfeit of food were four times more likely to have grandchildren who died of diabetes mellitus than those who suffered famine in childhood.
