Several days ago, a study was released ( performed in California) that documented an association between obesity during pregnancy and autism in the children born to these mothers. About 1000 children between the ages were studied to see if autism was more common in women with hypertension, diabetes, obesity and metabolic syndrome. The association of autism with obesity was the strongest. Add this to the myriad of obesity related medical conditions: heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes, colon cancer, breast cancer, GERD, arthritis , sleep apnea, back pain, early dementia, depression. Being obese kills and maims. If you have a weight control issue, before eating the food sources that got you there, always ask yourself the question: Is it really worth it?
