New research undertaken at Auckland University suggests that the tendency towards obesity occurs in the womb, rather than as a result of our remote-control society. The findings – recently published in the American Physiological Society journal – show that the offspring of women who are undernourished during pregnancy switch to fat-storing mode to aid their future survival. “Healthcare funding may better be spent on improving pregnancy care rather than waiting until metabolic and cardiovascular disorders manifest in adults years or decades later.”
