Johns Hopkins new research findings suggest that infants, who are immediately subjected to a diet rich in fats are more likely to be obese.
Researchers carried out a series of experiments on rats, during, which they observed that mother rats who were fed a diet rich in fats but their offspring was exposed to limited amount of fats, just after birth, were at minimum risks of facing obesity and related diseases as they grew.
However, in case the situation was vice-versa, that is mothers were fed a normal fat diet but offspring were given a diet rich in fats, they were reported to be categorized as obese by the time mothers stop feeding them.
The scientists said, “The experiments suggest that what mammalian babies — including humans — get to eat as newborns and young children may be more important to their metabolic future than exposure to unhealthy nutrition in the womb”.
Lead author of the study, Kellie L. K. Tamashiro, Ph. D., from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, affirmed that the study results suggest that subjecting an infant to high-fat diet can result into obesity.
However, in case they are given a proper nutritious diet since the beginning, then it lowers the chances of obesity, heart ailments, diabetes.
