"Nothing ever fully prepares someone when
embarking on parenthood but this book certainly
takes a lot of the fear and unknown out of the equation.

About Dr. David V. Schapira

Dr. David V. Schapira is an internationally recognized physician and researcher in the areas of nutrition and cancer prevention and cost effectiveness and economics in medical practice.

His work has been featured nationally and internationally and in the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, USA Today, CNN, NBC Nightly News and The Today Show. He conducted research on the female body shape, demonstrating that upper body fat distribution increases the risk of breast cancer and endometrial cancer. These two research studies received international attention and he coined the term "apple shaped" women for women who have upper body fat distribution (fat around their abdomen) and "pear shaped" for women with lower body fat distribution (fat around buttock and thighs). 

Dr. Schapira has published 200 scientific articles in peer reviewed journals and has been the Principal Investigator on 10 grants from national agencies worth $7 million.
