Researchers wanted to understand why the body weight of people living in similar environments can vary significantly, and why some people seem to easily maintain a healthy body size while others struggle. The team from Cambridge University showed in their paper published in the journal PLOS Genetics that while environmental factors such as eating low-calorie foods and a sedentary lifestyle contribute to obesity, thinness is as inherited as serious obesity, and both have a number of loci the location of a genetic marker in common. Existing studies on families and twins have consistently shown that between 40 to 70 percent of variations in body weight are inherited, the authors wrote. To investigate this, the scientists compared the genetic data of 1, thin people 74 percent of whom saw thinness in the family , 1, severely obese people and another 10, individuals with a normal weight to act as the control. Not only did the researchers discover genetic variants that are known to increase their risk of developing obesity, they found new genetic regions that are related to being slim or overweight.
