Trends in fatness and the origins of obesity

Pediatrics 57(4): 443-456
Trends in fatness and the origins of obesity
Fatfold data include both triceps and subcapular fatfolds for more than 40,000 infants, children, adolescents and adults; the data include blacks, whites, Puerto Ricans, Mexican-Americans (Chicanos) and others. The fatfold data provide complete life-cycle information on fatness trends from infancy onward and in reasonable socioeconomic perspective. Some fatness trends, such as the prepubertal gain in fatness, hold at all income levels and are indeed a part of normal development. Certain other fatness trends are restricted to particular socioeconomic groups or are disproportionately influenced by the children of the obese.
