Genetics of Obesity

Science shows that genetics plays an important role in obesity. Genes can directly cause obesity in disorders such as Bardet-Biedl syndrome and Prader- willi syndrome.The percentage of obesity that can be attributed to genetics varies widely, depending on the population examined, from 6% to 85%.At the risk of oversimplification, it seems that from a genetic standpoint, human obesity appears less a metabolic than a neurobehavioural disease.
