Obesity free generations.

If only, more obese people are aware of the fact that their mothers are the cause of their obesity, they might start blaming them.

I happen to read a news item a few of weeks ago that high fat diet during pregnancy causes some changes in fetal brain and that leads to obesity even in kids.It is a sort of programming the body’s metabolism even before birth.

This is based on some research that suggests exposure to triglycerides from the mother’s diet has the same effect on the developing fetal brain — and that the effect then lasts throughout the offspring’s life.

If mothers are aware of this rare fact, they may soon be the cause for obesity free generations.
