A recent biostatistical study attempted to determine the relationship between childhood and adult obesity. Across all weight, sex, racial, and ethnic groups, most of the severely obese teenagers in the study-defined as having a body mass index greater than or equal to 40-did not become severely obese as adults. However, a large proportion of severely obese teens remained so into adulthood. At greatest risk of becoming severely obese were black females.
