Evidence for an association between birth weight and blood pressure.

Abstract

Evidence is presented to support the concept that there is an association between birth weight and blood pressure in humans. This relationship probably reflects an interaction between the genetic make-up of the individual and the environment. On average, a decrease in birth weight is associated with a rise in blood pressure in adult life.
