(SocietyForScience.org) – According to Danish researcher Line Klingen Haugaard of University of Copenhagen in Denmark, the health of over 300,000 Danes born between 1930 and 1987 showed an increase in strokes in those who had higher BMI (Body Mass Index) by the age of 13. Also, Britt Wang Jensen of Bispebjerg and Frederiksberg Hospital in Copenhagen and her team noted an increase in colon cancer instances in a sample of 250,000 individuals born between 1930 and 1972 with higher BMI from the ages of 7 to 13.
