A simple formula can predict at birth a baby's likelihood of becoming obese in childhood, according to a study published today in the open access journal PLOS ONE.No online calculator is needed.
The formula, which is available as an online calculator, estimates the child's obesity risk based on its birth weight, the body mass index of the parents, the number of people in the household, the mother's professional status and whether she smoked during pregnancy.
Just a mirror. In the home.
And this risk crap is a distraction.
Fat, stupid parents (redundancy), will take the risk and justify it more vigorously at some arbitrarily "low" level.
Better to realize that all kids of fat parents are at risk.
