Have you ever heard the phrase “the freshman 15” ? It refers to the average 15lbs increase in weight that every young adult goes through when they attend their first year at University AWAY from home. This is usually thought of as a natural thing and since “they’re still young” it’s not that big a deal. Well according to a new study it may be a big deal.
The study shows that even if blood pressure appears healthy, blood flow or circulation is affected which if maintained will lead to long term problems.
