Growing Up in Poverty & Poor Future Health: Relationship Explained

There is no doubt that your diet and lifestyle directly affect your health now and ahead, but have you ever thought about the impact of the family's level of living income during childhood and the possibility of a deterioration in the health of children in the future?
