Having Kids Makes You Fat. So Does Having Friends.

July 26th, 2007 by Dr. Bromberg

Two discouraging recent articles from the New York Times: All Child-Play and No Workouts Make Dad an Unfit Boy and Study Says Obesity Can Be Contagious.

The first article discusses recent research from the University of Pittsburgh. The second, a study recently published in The New England Journal of Medicine (the link will take you to an abstract of the paper).

For those of you without access to NYTimes online archives, click here for the first article, and here for the second.
