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

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 wa
