A new study suggests there are more genetic links to obesity than earlier considered. Most of the times, overweight adults are criticized for lifestyle and behavioral options they have adopted over time. But, the new research suggests that the reason behind overweight or obesity could be genetic. According to researchers, diet and exercise play important role in keeping the weight in control. However, genes should also be considered for their role in obesity.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has reported that over one-third of United States adults are obese. Obesity among higher percentage of school going kids has been noticed during the recent years.
