A Stressed Mother's Offspring At Greater Risk For Abdominal Obesity

More crap from the excusinators.

Really, what mother is not stressed on occasion?
New research in the FASEB Journal suggests that the neuropeptide Y in plasma and its Y2 receptor in visceral fat play an important role in obesity.

A new report involving mice suggests that a relationship exists between maternal metabolic or psychological stress and the development of obesity, type 2 diabetes, and metabolic syndrome in her offspring. What's more, the report shows that if the stress cannot be reduced or eliminated, manipulating the neuropeptide Y (NPY) system in visceral fat may prevent maternal stress-induced obesity from occurring in the next generation. This discovery is reported in...The FASEB Journal.
"Discovery" as in S-H-*-T.
