Health-Net: These surprising findings, in Britain, hundreds of children and even infants become obese. Even among them there are affected by a stroke at the age of six years old.

Based on data released by the Freedom of Information Action, 66 of 168 British hospitals, in the last five years there are 5500 children under age 16 do treatment of obesity. As reported by The Telegraph on Sunday June 12, 2011, the children were undergoing surgery such as gastric surgery, gastric bypass also, to reduce obesity.

From that data, there is one case where a 15 year old boy weighing 156 pounds should be treated in North Staffordshire, England before being taken to Mexico for stomach surgery. In addition, the entire family is also required to follow a healthy eating course.

I'm even dealing with children aged two years, and we more often find patients with very early age, said Dr. Ken Ong of Addenbrooke's hospital in Cambridge, England.

Those who come to the hospital were patients who had experienced extreme obesity. However, there are many more children who are obese in the community who have not been reported. Communities are generally thought, they would only overweight at children and will grow normally in the future. However, according to a study Addenbroke's hospital, children were kept until they are adults are obese, and even tends to get worse.
