Genetics of Obesity:

Science shows that genetics plays an important role in obesity. Genes can directly cause obesity in disorders such asBardet-Biedl syndrome and Prader- willi syndrome. However genes do not always predict future health but genes and behavior may both be needed for a person to be overweight. In some cases multiple genes may increase one’s susceptibility for obesity and require outside factors; such as abundant food supply or little physical activity. Population-based association and linkage studies have highlighted a number of loci at which genetic variation is associated with obesity. The percentage of obesity that can be attributed to genetics varies widely, depending on the population examined, from 6% to 85%.At the risk of oversimplification, it seems that from a genetic standpoint, human obesity appears less a metabolic than a neurobehavioral disease.
