Genetic mutation fuels childhood obesity - Study http://bit.ly/HqoxbV

Jorge Tapia's curator insight, February 6, 2014 5:24 PM

This article was very interesting. It really brought my attention because now a days many children suffer from obesity. The study that was carried on showed the difference between those children who had the gene mutation to those who didn't carry it. The results were shocking. Researchers discovered a gene mutation which is responsible for having a slow metabolism, or the rate at which calories in the body are burnt. The study was done to children to check if the gene was responsible for fuelling human obesity. In the end, the study said that children with gene mutation were more likely to have an increased appetite, slower metabolism, lower heart rate and also a severe insulin resistance as compared to those who didn't carry the gene mutation in their body.

Researchers have discovered a genetic mutation called KSR2. This mutation triggers hunger pangs in obese and overweight patients. The researchers also state that it is a reason for slow metabolisms

You can beat the "fat" gene, stop using it as an excuse to eat fatty foods.

F as in Fat: How Obesity Threatens America’s Future 2013

F as in Fat: How Obesity Threatens America’s Future 2013 | Nutrition | Scoop.it

After three decades of increases, adult obesity rates remained level in every state except for one, Arkansas, in the past year, according to F as in Fat: How Obesity Threatens America's Future 2013, a report from the Trust for America's Health (TFAH) and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF). The full report is available here. Visit http://www.FasinFat.org/ for interactives, graphs, charts and obesity rates for the states and nation going back decades.

Thirteen states now have adult obesity rates above 30 percent, 41 states have rates of at least 25 percent, and every state is above 20 percent, according to the report. In 1980, no state was above 15 percent; in 1991, no state was above 20 percent; in 2000, no state was above 25 percent; in 2007, only Mississippi was above 30 percent.*

Since 2005, there has been some evidence that the rate of increase has been slowing. In 2005, every state but one experienced an increase in obesity rates; in 2008, rates increased in 37 states; in 2010, rates increased in 28 states; and in 2011, rates increased in 16 states.*

1. Through the use of many statistics the author has made their case effective.

2. This article was about the weights in some states and how high the obesity rates are, and how the rates remained level in mostly every state the past year.

3. The article definitely was not the most interesting one I have read, but was very informative.

Although the AMA now classifies obesity as a disease, Social Security generally will not approve claims based solely on excess weight. #SSDI #obesitydisease
