Doomed From Birth?

Mothers in utero may be ‘programming’ fetal stem cells to accumulate extra fat according to a recent study taking umbilical cord stem cells from of normal weight babies of obese mothers & non-obese mothers. In the lab, cells from the baby with obese mothers grew and had more fat accumulation which can effect insulin resistance in the future.

It has been known for over a decade that women who have or become Diabetic during pregnancy pass on that potential  and other metabolic problems. Now it is would appear that obesity can also be passed on!
