Study: Genetic Excuse for Obesity Is ‘Myth’

Do you know someone who claims genetics is to blame for their obesity? That’s just not true according to a new study from UK’s Telegraph.

They report that “people could work off around 40 per cent of the extra weight that ‘fat genes’ laid on them by exercising.”

It goes on to say add that although some people do have a predisposition to be overweight or even obese, scientists at the Medical Research Council’s Epidemiology Unit in Cambridge discovered that having an active lifestyle could go a long way to countering a person’s genetic inheritance.

What do you think of this new study? Agree/Disagree? Please share.
