Obese children had 27 percent more muscle mass in the left ventricle of their hearts and 12 percent thicker heart muscles – both signs of heart disease – compared to normal weight children. Obese kids as young as 8 years old already have dangerous damage to their hearts, researchers reported on Tuesday. Imaging scans of their hearts show a thickening of the muscle — a sign of strain. Obese children as young as eight are showing the first signs of heart disease, experts at the Geisinger Health System have warned None of the children showed physical symptoms of heart disease.
