The 139kg schoolgirl aged just TEN: Shocking case of child’s morbid obesity revealed


A ten-year-old schoolgirl has been weighed at 139.7kg in a city where six similarly aged children weigh more than 100kg.

Almost 50 youngsters under the age of 11 weigh more than 70kg in the area where the unidentified girl tops the list of morbidly obese children.

Figures obtained by a Freedom of Information request have revealed the shocking extent of the country’s fast-spreading obesity epidemic.

At one school 10 of the heaviest year six pupils as weighed more than a Mini Cooper collectively, and one in 10 children was recorded as obese when starting school.

The 139.7kg child from Birmingham (England) had a body mass index of 70 – 40 points higher than the point at which a child is considered obese.

Medics now warn that almost a quarter of children of the same age are officially classed as obese.

The health risks of being morbidly obese include diabetes, osteoarthritis, obstructive sleep apnea, cancer, cardiovascular and liver disease.

Britain’s childhood obesity epidemic has seen hospitals deal with nearly 1,000 children in the past three years.

Alarmingly, children as young as ten months old have been admitted to hospital because they are dangerously overweight, according to figures released in October.
