Imbalance in obesity and mental health among "little emperors" in China.

08:00 EDT 10th April 2019 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Imbalance in obesity and mental health among "little emperors" in China."

Previous research has indicated that only children (i.e., those living with no siblings) have higher odds of obesity during childhood and young adulthood, compared with those living with siblings. However, little is known about whether the developing difference in overweight/obesity is accompanied by a difference in mental health (i.e., internalizing symptoms of depression and anxiety).
