Scientists have named the reason why children are gaining excess weight
Researchers from America spoke about the reasons that may in future lead to the development of obesity in children.
It is noted that the study was conducted with the participation of 110 people, whose age was 12 years.
The experiment lasted for 8.5 years, during which time the participants passed surveys, followed the weight and height.
As a result, it was found that those people who were more often teased because of weight at an early age, gained 33% more and 91% more fat mass than muscles.
But the guys who were not belittled by their peers, on the contrary, got rid of extra pounds.
Experts believe that ridicule due to body weight can lead to its subsequent recruitment.
