research shows dad, not mum, is the big risk factor for childhood obesity.

研究表明,爸爸(而不是妈妈)是儿童肥胖的首要风险因素。

 

a recent australian study has found having an overweight father quadruples a child's chance of being overweight, even if they have a mother of normal weight.

澳大利亚最近的一项研究表明,在家里,即使妈妈的体重正常,只要爸爸超重,孩子超重的几率就会增加3倍。

 

interestingly, the reverse scenario doesn't have the same result. so if the mother is overweight but the father is of normal weight, the child's risk of being overweight is not significantly raised.

有趣的是,如果情况相反,爸爸体重正常妈妈超重,就不会出现上面的结果,孩子超重的几率不会显著提高。

 

the study was undertaken by researchers at the university of newcastle, who examined more than 3000 two-parent families over a four-year period. researchers measured the children's change of weight from about four to five years of age to when they were eight or nine.

这项研究是由纽卡斯尔大学的研究人员进行的,他们对三千多个双亲家庭进行了为时四年多的研究。研究人员从孩子们在八岁或九岁时开始对孩子的体重进行测量,对他们的体重变化进行了四到五年的研究。

 

dr emily freeman, a researcher with the university of newcastle family action centre, says while it is early days in terms of this type of research, the results of the study are very exciting.

艾米莉-弗里曼博士是纽卡斯尔大学家庭行动中心的研究人员,她说这种类型的研究现在还处于早期阶段,研究结果非常令人兴奋。
