Abstract

•Ambient temperature during gestation may predict thermoregulatory responses later in life.•We test whether cold-related deaths rise among Swedes born in warm times.•Results support the hypothesis for cold-related ischemic heart disease deaths.•Warm ambient temperatures in utero increase cold-related mortality in adulthood.
