Our Children, Our Legacy explores the vital, often overlooked, connection between nutrition and reproductive health.
This comprehensive book explores the societal challenges behind the rise in infertility and chronic disease. Many of the chronic illnesses of today are due to our bodies response to poor nutrition. Dr. O’Dowd’s book shares insights into the path that has led society into health crisis: the rise in chronic diseases; increased vulnerability to novel infections; and an increasingly medicated society.
Underpinning this book is the key premise that we all have a personal obligation to ourselves and to the next generation, our children. We have the opportunity to act now to turn away from delivering a legacy of chronic disease. Instead, we can choose to take action to optimise our own overall and reproductive health, in order to pass on a healthier future.
The book offers clear advice on how to build a strong nutritional foundation to support lifelong health, starting even before conception.

5 Star Book Reviews
- C Patterson: The ultimate guide to nutrition
This important and accessible book urges us to review what and why we eat. Essential reading for all, especially now.
- Laura: NOTHING is more important than giving my son and future children the tools to live their best life…
I learnt from this book that I can help my children’s predisposition to certain health related diseases that would usually present around their 40’s, even before they are born. And all I have to do is eat real food. Have a read…form your own opinion but be open minded. Health and nutrition can actually be extremely simple.
