In searching for biological origins of obesity, Louisiana lab goes back to the beginning of life

Is metabolism set from birth? One lab is studying newborns to find out.

The Pennington Biomedical Research Center in Louisiana — the only lab in the world equipped to measure metabolism in infants — hopes to reveal the origins of obesity. The infant metabolic chamber was designed by Russell Rising (Metabolic consultant, D & S Consulting Services Inc. Manhattan, NY) and uses Sable’s Promethion Room Calorimetry system.
