Latest research:

Heavy maternal smoking during pregnacy was linked to a nearly fivefold increase in early-onset type 2 diabetes and obesity in offspring. "In utero exposures to smoking during pregnancy may increase the risk to both diabetes and obesity through programming, resulting in lifelong metabolic dysregulation, possibly due to fetal malnutrition or toxicity."
