It found that the prevalence of stunting in Chinese children and adolescent due to long-term insufficient nutrient intake and infections decreased from 8.1% to 2.4% in that time period, and thinness declined from 7.5% to 4.1%.
Current levels of obesity among Chinese adults are among the lowest in the world, said Lindsay M. Jaacks, an assistant professor at the Department of Global Health and Population at the Harvard T.H.
"The importance of this finding cannot be underestimated, considering evidence that excess weight gained in childhood is carried into adulthood and increases the risk of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and some cancers," she wrote in a commentary published alongside the research.More on Obesity

A jury in the first federal court trial of thousands of lawsuits by cancer victims against the manufacturer of the worlds most widely used herbicide found Tuesday that Monsantos Roundup was a likely cause of a Sonoma County mans non-Hodgkins lymphoma.

His lawyers countered that Hardeman had been free of hepatitis since 2004, but an oncologist testifying for Monsanto said the illness had lasting effects on the genetic system a hit-and-run impact, as the witness put it that left its victims vulnerable to cancer.More on Lymphoma

For some people, it's tough to prevent flare-ups of rosacea, the reddened and sometimes bumpy skin that shows up on the cheeks, nose, and other areas of the face.
Researchers analyzed health and diet survey responses gathered every four years from nearly 83,000 women (most of whom were white) from 1991 to 2005.
Increased caffeine intake from tea, soda, and chocolate had no impact on the likelihood of developing rosacea.More on Rosacea
