Overweight: How much influence from parents?
Monday, April 12, 2004 10:08 am Email this article
OBESE PARENTS ARE MORE COMMON among obese females than obese males, and are more common in blacks than whites.
Also, the younger a child is when they become obese the heavier they become as adults.
These results were obtained after reviewing the records of 3,227 obese adults over the past three decades.
