It was 13 percent in 1993-1994, but by 2002-2003, it had skyrocketed to 22 percent.”Our findings indicate that a mother’s obesity can impair the health of later generations,” says Dr. Moley. “This is particularly important because more than two thirds of reproductive-age women in the United States are overweight or obese.”
