Obese genes were found
According to the relevant standards of the United Nations, the World Health Organization estimates that approximately 1.6 billion adults worldwide are overweight, and at least 400 million of them are obese.
The organization has speculated that by 2015, the number of adults overweight in the world will reach 2.3 billion, and the number of adults will reach 700 million.
The World Health Organization has also revealed that obesity has always been considered a problem, but today, in low-income and middle-income countries, obesity is becoming more and more serious, especially in urban areas of these countries.
The newspaper reported that British researchers announced on the 12th that they have confirmed an allele related to obesity for the first time in the world. If two copies of the gene have mutations, the additional chance is higher than normal.70%.
The researchers are on about 3.
The study was discovered by 90,000 Europeans who called it fto.
The research was published in the journal Science published on the 13th.
Most people have obesity genes. This research group consists of 42 scientists, Andrew of the British Peninsula Medical School.
Hartsley and Mark of Oxford University?
McCarthy is jointly responsible for the leadership, they are about 3 from the United Kingdom, Finland and Italy.
The so-called fto allele was first identified by 90,000 adults and children after research.
Certain genes in the human body usually appear in pairs, called “alleles”, one copy from the parent and the other from the mother.
The researchers found that the presence of fto in humans is quite common, with approximately 63% of all subjects studied having one or two copies of the fto gene.
Among them, 47% have a copy of the fto gene, and another 16% have two copies.
Researchers believe that mutations in the fto gene copy will greatly increase a person’s chances of becoming obese.
If both copies mutate, the chance of obesity is 70% higher than those without variants.
If there is only one copy of the fto gene mutation, the probability of exceeding it is 30% higher than that of the non-variant copy.
Researchers believe that the role of the fto gene will not be revealed until the age of seven.
Researchers say they can’t accurately grasp the specific role this gene causes in the process of getting fat.
Looking for a new path for weight loss Today, too much has been considered a growing global health problem.
Compared with normal people, obese people are much more likely to develop type 2 diabetes, mental illness, high blood pressure, high blood pressure and certain cancers.
Researchers say that reducing the lifestyle of a better person is still the current popular method of weight loss, but many people find that no matter how hard they try, they can’t lose weight.
This finding raises the appropriate answer for this, that is, the fto gene in your body drags your hind legs.
However, the researchers said that the rise in the number of people in the world in recent decades is not entirely attributable to the fto gene.
They believe that people who eat a lot of junk food and rarely exercise are also important reasons for getting fat.
”Although this is the first gene that has been discovered to be over-exposed,” McCarthy said, “but it is by no means the only one.
McCarthy said that although too many people can be attributed to the existence of this gene, it alone cannot properly explain many obesity problems.
The researchers also said they hope that this discovery will find a new path to solve the problem of over-exposure, and they will also study the role of the fto gene in more people.
