Link exists between obesity, poor dental health for homeless children
from Dentistry Today
Obesity and dental cavities become worse as impoverished children grow older, according to a new study. The researchers determined that as body mass index went up as children got older, the numbers of cavities increased as well. Groups at the Case Western Reserve University and the University of Akron conducted the research. The information appeared in the Journal of Pediatric Health. The research was compiled after analyzing data from 157 children, ages 2 to 17, at an urban homeless shelter. Most of the fathers were not in the picture.
