The postnatal period is a very critical period in terms of nutrition. Over nutrition at this time may lead to changes in the endocrine pancreas gene expression. Postnatal diets influence obesity, diabetes and hypertension. A study was conducted by Department of Radiation Oncology, Duke University Medical Center, Durham, and Division of Nutritional Sciences, Cornell University, Ithaca on rats to determine the biological mechanism by which the above happens.
