There is a study that just came out that is trying to connect weight in kids to having their tonsils removed. The connection seems non-existent to us but you know these researchers have a lot of time on their hands. They have connected an increase in weight to kids who have had their tonsils removed that kids in their study who didn’t have their tonsils removed didn’t experience. Since only half a million kids get their tonsils removed each year – what explains the weight gain in the millions of other kids?
We think the childhood obesity epidemic is tied to lifestyle issues like children not moving enough and kids eating too much.
