Obesity 'may be largely genetic'
« on: February 07, 2008, 11:55:04 PM »
Becoming overweight as a child is more likely to be the result of your genes than your lifestyle, claims a study.
 
University College London researchers examined more than 5,000 pairs of identical and non-identical twins.

Their American Journal of Clinical Nutrition study found that differences in body mass index and waist size were 77% governed by genes.

An anti-obesity group said regardless of genes, a balanced diet and exercise were vital to good health.
