Scientists have found a new risk factor for cancer in children
Researchers at the University of Public Health in Pittsburgh, together with Hillman, conducted an experiment and learned that obesity in the mother could be the main cause of child development of oncology.
It is noted that in the course of scientific work were studied epicrisis 1.8 million babies.
Doctors diagnosed oncology and leukemia in 2.3 thousand children, whose age ranged from 2 to 14 years.
As a result, it was found that a significant proportion of the mothers of these children suffered from overweight.
Experts are convinced that the main role in this situation is played by an increased level of insulin in the blood of pregnant women with overweight, which leads to oncology in children.
