Gallstone Risk Higher Among Obese Children And Teenagers

Fat parents have fat kids.
Obese and overweight children or teenagers have a considerably higher risk of developing gallstones compared to their peers of normal weight, researchers from Kaiser Permanente, USA, reported in the Journal of Pediatric Gastroenterology & Nutrition. Gallstones are not usually seen in kids, the researchers added.

The authors found that, compared to children and teenagers of normal weight, the risk of developing gallstones was:
Six times as high among extremely obese teenagers and children Four times as high among moderately obese teenagers and children Twice as high among overweight teenagers and children
More early nutritional child abuse.

Hold the parents accountable.
