Ridiculous Study of the Week: Childhood Obesity and Diabetes

You are not going to believe this one but researchers found out that kids who are obese can get diabetes.  Crazy, right?  Well, here is one of the authors to clarify it for you if you don’t understand:

“As the prevalence of obesity and being overweight has rapidly risen, an increasing number of children and young adults have been diagnosed with diabetes….”

I really hope they dive deeper into this kind of research.  My mind is blown. What will we learn next?

    More funding is needed. I have read that obesity also can contribute to degenerative joint disease on Earth, but has anyone studied obesity and joint disease in space?
