Dr. Almond's findings are unique because he focuses not only on the fetal environment, but the environment of the child's mother and descendents.   This research is unique because reminds us to look at the environmental and biological factors that allow a child to thrive later in life, and points out the importance of examining factors that could affect one's future well-being before he or she is born.
