Raising Healthy Kids

by Jason Prall


A child's health is partially mapped out before they have even entered the world, depending on the mother's health, the antibodies she has formed, and the bacteria that make up her gut microbiota. From fertility to pregnancy and throughout the first years of life, how can we know all the important steps that need to be taken to protect and promote children's health?

Jason Prall is a former engineer who was inspired by his experience with modern medicine to seek out expert opinions and wisdom from healthy populations regarding longevity. The Human Longevity Project is a nine-part documentary series that explores all aspects of how we can live longer and healthier lives. In this episode, Prall focuses on all the factors that must come together from conception to birth and beyond in order to raise healthy children.
