With obesity now affecting one in six children and adolescents in the U.S., researchers are seeking to uncover if and how a mother's lifestyle habits impact her child's weight.

Sometimes it is the first sign of heart problems.“Some people just come in out of the blue having been seemingly perfectly healthy,” said Dr. Gail Cunningham, chief medical officer at University of Maryland St. Joseph Medical Center in Towson, where Kamenetz was taken for treatment and was later pronounced dead.Cunningham said this happens when a blood vessel suddenly becomes blocked, which starves the heart of blood and oxygen.

While this keeps some blood flow throughout the body, it is not the same as … [Read more...] about Kevin Kamenetz lived a healthy lifestyle.
