Our health system resembles a repair service which treats illness and suffering. But in many cases it would seem much simpler to avoid health problems. Why do we wait until the illnesses have developed?Young and expectant families are particularly interested in maintaining the health of their children and their whole family. Since prevention must begin long before the emergence of illness, there can be no better time to start than the beginning of life. This book presents a range of contributions that not only encourage theoretical reflection about the topics discussed but also provide practical suggestions.
