Study finds obese mums more likely to have obese daughters

WOMEN born to obese mothers are much more likely to be obese as adults, according to a New Zealand-led study.

Researchers from the University of Auckland's Liggins Institute and Sweden's Uppsala University examined early pregnancy data on 26,000 mother- and-daughter pairs.

They found overweight mothers were nearly three times more likely to have an obese adult daughter, and obese mums nearly five times more likely. Dr Jose Derraik said the findings showed a worsening intergenerational cycle of obesity.
