Overweight or smoking teens get more headaches

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- A new study found that teens who are overweight, smoke or don't exercise, have more headaches and migraines than those who live a healthier lifestyle.

The study says those teens are more than three times as likely to have frequent headaches than those with none of these lifestyle factors.

Smoking was the highest single risk factor for headaches.

Researchers say their findings suggest treating headaches in teens may also need to include promoting exercise, healthy eating and smoking cessation in particular.
