Fat Genes Determine Obesity According to UCLA Study

New research shows weight gain from a high fat diet is genetic. John Basedow reports on the first comprehensive study, done at the University of California Los Angeles, that links body fat percentage increases to genetic factors in mice. Some mice fed a high fat diet for eight weeks saw no fat gain while others increased 600-percent in body fat. Diet and exercise remain huge factors in obesity and further research is needed to find designer drugs and treatments to target "fat genes."
