A Study Shows That Mom’s Obesity Surgery May Help Break Cycle in Obese Kids

Washington, USA (PRWEB) June 25, 2013

There seems to be a trend these days with childhood obesity. When mothers tend to be obese, then her children will likely become obese as well. New research might help break this disheartening trend. According to a report on ABC News' website, weight-loss surgery may actually help break down this cycle. The results may come in the form of affecting the genes in the children.

In Canada, the study shows that several genes related to obesity health problems actually worked differently in younger kids when compared to brothers and sisters that were older than them. It was found that those children who were born after their mother’s weight-loss surgery might have an advantage over their older siblings.

In a prediction, Dr Marie-Claude Vohl of Laval University in Quebec City said, "The impact on the genes, you will see the impact for the rest of your life."

At first glance, it seems that the genes are the same, regardless of a weight-loss surgery or not. But, it’s not about the genes themselves, but how they operate in the body of her child. The idea is this: the factors that are in the womb can affect the dimmer switches that develop on the genes of the fetus. Basically, this is the chemical changes that can make genes speed up or down, or turn on or off. Because of this, overall health of the child can be greatly influenced.

In other words, the environment in which the growing baby inside the womb can alter how their genes work after they are born.

The knowledge gained from this research has been found to have incredible implications that extend farther than just a handful of women who take up gastric bypass surgery, prior to pregnancy. Scientists are looking for many other ways to deal with obesity, both before and during pregnancy.

What's clear is that obesity is "not just impacting your life, it's impacting your child," said Dr Susan Murphy of Duke University. She also said that it makes sense that, in a biological sense, the earliest nutritional environment that the mother partakes in, would affect how the baby develops as well.

Prescopodene Nutritionals has found another way to help keep weight in check, which can help lower weight, and keep up a mother’s health, as well as her child’s after birth. They discovered a natural diet supplement called Prescopodene. Prescopodene has been found to help reduce weight in overweight and obese individuals. The diet pill was recently named one of the “Best Diet Pills of 2012” by The Diet Pill Review, an independent industry review group – Prescopodene earned perfect scores for safety, effectiveness, and speed of results.
