Genes Predict Body Shape and Fatness
Figuring it all out is of great importance, because obese people are at greater risk of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer and more. Specifically, those shaped like apples—with their fat concentrated in the abdomen—are at much higher risk for diabetes.

Could a Keto Diet Be Bad For Athletes' bones?
But if people follow a low-carbohydrate, ketogenic diet, they soon burn through their stored carbohydrates and their bodies start relying on fat for energy. The fat must be broken down first, however, and, as part of that process, the liver creates substances known as ketone bodies that can be converted into energy.
Father’s gene linked to baby’s birth weight
One group of growth genes of particular interest are the imprinted genes inherited from one’s parents - if the paternal one is expressed, the maternal one is imprinted (silenced) and vice versa
Longer Sleep Times May Counteract Genetic Factors Related to Weight Gain
Toss out another old wives' tale: Sleeping too much does not make you fat. Quite the opposite, according to a new study examining sleep and body mass index (BMI) in twins, which found that sleeping more than nine hours a night may actually suppress genetic influences on body weight.
Obesity-Promoting Genes in an Obesity-Promoting World
Emerging research has also begun to identify the genetic underpinnings of so-called “common” obesity, which is influenced by dozens, if not hundreds, of genes.
Does Malnutrition Have A Genetic Component?
Although lack of food is a major contributor to childhood malnutrition, it is not the sole cause.
Gene mutation evolved to cope with modern high-sugar diets
The researchers were investigating the CLTCL1 gene, which directs production of the CHC22 protein that plays a key role in regulating a glucose transporter in our fat and muscle cells.
How our genes respond to the foods we eat
How does food affect gene expression? NTNU researchers Ingerid Arbo and Hans-Richard Brattbakk have fed slightly overweight people different diets, and studied the effect of this on gene expression.
