Can Some Babies be Hardwired for Obesity?

PositiveTips

Early research on fetal stem cells found an obese mother may "program" her child's cells to accumulate extra fat. This epigenetic study found cells from babies of obese mothers had greater accumulation of fat and a higher content of biomarkers for fat cells. This research is continuing, but these findings remind us the Bible teaches that traits can be passed from parents to children and even grandchildren (Exodus 34:7).

PositiveTip: Making good choices today may protect your children and grandchildren tomorrow.
