Childhood stress may make women gain weight

Wed, Jul 08, 2015, 03:10 PM
New York, July 8: Childhood stress may have a bigger influence on weight gain by women than stress during adulthood, says a study.

Interestingly, the study that appeared online in the journal Social Science & Medicine found that neither childhood nor adult stress was associated with weight gain for men.

"These findings add to our understanding of how childhood stress is a more important driver of long term weight gain than adult stress, and how such processes differ for men and women," said one of the researchers Hui Liu, associate professor of sociology at Michigan State University in the US.
