A study carried out by researchers from Tel Aviv University and funded by the Ministry of Science and Technology, Israel and the Ministry of Research, Taiwan and by the Ela Kodesz Institute for Cardiac Physical Sciences and Engineering was published in the American Journal of Physiology – Cell Physiology last year, it concluded that placing precursor fat cells under mechanical stretching stress causes them to produce fat at a faster rate. In plain terms, the weight pressure that we place on fat cells in our bottom when we sit down could contribute to increased bottom fat.

What do you think of the result of this research? Would you get up more often and exercise?

"A mother who chooses caesarean delivery on maternal request should be aware of potential health risks to her and her baby, including childhood obesity and other potential long-term risks." wrote in the journal Archives of Disease in Childhood by the lead author Dr Susanna Huh, of the Division of Gastroenterology and Nutrition, +Children's Hospital Boston, Massachusetts, US.

In the study, infants delivered by caesarean section had twofold higher odds of childhood obesity, even after adjusting for maternal BMI, birth weight and other confounding variables.

Sue Macdonald, education and research manager at the Royal College of Midwives, said: “This highlights the need to avoid caesarean sections that are not medically needed."

Would this research result affect your decision if you were to have baby in the future? We'd like to hear from you!
