A study carried out by researchers at the Functional Food Institute of Université Laval in Quebec City revealed that bariatric surgery's effect can be far more thoughtful than just offering benefits like preventing a child from growing obese or creating a good environment for them.
It is being said that mothers who undergo the bariatric surgery or weight-loss surgery not only improve their lifestyles and help them remain healthy. But, the same also probably assists in rewriting genetic code. A future child may experience the same.
The team says that the procedure can take place by the switching off of genes, which predispose children to obesity. Also, sometimes, the same puts them at risk of other health problems, which may include heart disease too.
The study is to be presented at the Canadian Cardiovascular Congress in Toronto. 25 women, who had undergone biliopancreatic bypass surgery, had been recruited for the same. It was found that the ones losing significant weight were benefitting their babies.
"The surgery causes metabolic changes in the woman. This doesn't change the DNA of her offspring, but it does seem to change how the child's genes express", sources quoted postdoctoral fellow Dr. Frédéric Guénard as saying.
