The obesity epidemic isn't just an issue in the U.S., over in the United Kingdom, babies are being treated in the womb for obesity.
The Daily Mail reports, in four British cities, dangerously overweight pregnant women are being given a diabetes drug called metformin.
The drug is aimed at keeping the fetus from becoming overweight after it's born.
In England, the number of newborns weighing more than 11 pounds has soared by 50% over the last four years.
Metformin has been used for years for treatment of diabetes in adults.
If this medical trial is a success, tens of thousands of overweight mothers to be worldwide could start using the drug.
But this has raised some unease over a problem that could be solved by diet and exercise.
Do you feel we need to do whatever is necessary to prevent the obesity epidemic from growing?
Or should overweight pregnant women just exercise and eat right?
