Preventing obesity thanks to knowledge of your DNA

 Obesity is a chronic condition in which excess fat has accumulated in the body to such an extent that it creates health risks, such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, arthritis and cancer. It is generally caused by excessive food intake and a lack of physical activity, although in some cases the cause can be genetic. At present 12% of the Dutch population suffer from obesity (BMI>30).

Obesity and heredity

The risk of obesity is determined to some extent by hereditary factors. To date it has been scientifically proven that a number of genes play a role in this. On the basis of your DNA it is therefore possible to see clearly whether you have an increased or reduced risk of developing obesity.
