The Doctors discuss a new study that looked at nearly 3200 kids which found kids who were obese tended to have a thinner prefrontal cortex, which is the part of the brain responsible for one's behavior and making decisions.
ER physician Dr. Travis Stork notes obesity can be linked to inflammation, which can contribute to decreased blood flow, increase someone's risk for heart disease, and he says the health of our the brain is tied to these areas of health.
He feels this could be a warning call about the fight against childhood obesity, noting just how important the childhood years are for brain development.
The Doctors feel not enough healthy eating and not being active enough has lead to obesity rates rising. They encourage parents to try and lead by example and model healthy eating habits for their kids.
