Childhood Stress May Play A Significant Role In Some Women’s Weight Gain

HealthDay (7/17, Preidt) reports, “Childhood stress appears to play a significant role in some women’s weight gain,” according to a study published online in the journal Social Science & Medicine. However, “stress during adulthood does not affect women’s weight gain.” The study also found that “neither childhood nor adult stress is associated with weight gain in men.” Investigators came to these conclusions after analyzing data on approximately 2,200 women and 1,300 men.
