    Default Captain Obvious Strikes Again - Exercise Blunts Fat-Prone Gene Effects.

    Hey, guess what? Exercise will keep you thin, even if you are genetically prone to being overweight.

    http://www.physorg.com/news140107507.html

    You might want to print this page out to share this mind-blowing revelation with your friends.

    "Our results strongly suggest that the increased risk of obesity due to genetic susceptibility can be blunted through physical activity," the authors conclude. "These findings emphasize the important role of physical activity in public health efforts to combat obesity, particularly in genetically susceptible individuals." The results of the study are being published in the Sept. 8, 2008, issue of the Archives of Internal Medicine.

    Soren Snitker, M.D., Ph.D., the senior author and an assistant professor of medicine and pediatrics at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, says, "Our study shows that a high level of physical activity can 'level the playing field,' equalizing the risk of obesity between those who have copies of the FTO gene variant and those who don't."

    The FTO gene recently has been linked to obesity and increased body mass index, or BMI, in several large-scale studies. More than half of all people of European descent have one or two copies of a variation of this gene, British scientists reported last year. Individuals with two
    copies of the gene variant are on average 7 pounds heavier and 67 percent more likely to be obese than those who don't have it.
    I wonder if the research team is celebrating the publishing of their research by sending out for pizza?

    Holy shit - the sky is blue. Damn I need to open my eyes more often when I'm outside. It's not only exercising but caloric intake dipshits...
