Yo’ momma’s so fat, you came out dumb!

A new study shows links between pre-pregnancy obesity and lower test scores in students between 5 – 7 years old. Compared to mothers with a healthy pregnancy weight, those who were obese before conception are found to be at a higher risk of producing spawn with lower cognitive functioning. Cognitive functioning was measured through commonly used math and reading tests. Those produced in obese pregnancies had a three-point reduction in reading, and a two-point reduction in math.

The score differences may seem small, but they are equivalent to a 7 year decrease in the mothers education, as well as significantly lower family income, two other risk factors known to negatively effect childhood cognitive functioning.

Maternal obesity is suggested to effect the organs of a foetus such as the liver, heart and pancreas. With that in mind, it’s logical that it may also effect the babys brain. Obesity is a huge problem in the US. It is predicted that obesity will cost $550 billion in health expenses by 2030.
