PMID:  22383072     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
CONCLUSION: Neither positively linear nor J- or U-shaped relations exist between birth weight and overweight/obesity in adults. It is high birth weight, not low birth weight, that is associated with increased risk of overweight/obesity in adults.
