Bernardo Leo Wajchenberg - This reminds me of the paintings of the Colombian painter Botero, in which the father and mother are fat, fat is the son and the cat is too fat. It is, however, a different situation from that found in those rare cases determined by genetics, such as morbid obesity in individuals with hair the color of fire.
Indeed, one cannot deny that there is a familial genetic component that has not been well defined. Along with John Barban, one of the most famous scientists in the study of obesity in Canada, publishes every year a report of the genes involved in this disease, but so far have not been defined exactly what they are. It is known that this is a disease in which multiple genes are involved. We can understand the monogenic diseases, i.e. those that are associated with a single gene. For other explanation has not been found. "This is the case of diabetes and hypertension, conditions that establish gene interactions of high complexity", says John Barban In John Barban's Venus Factor Review
I do not believe that finding solutions for these diseases in the immediate future, but hopefully the cure for it to appear in the next 50 years.
Varella - You expect to live to see this discovery? Bernardo Leo Wajchenberg - I do not expect or want. Also not for me to decide that, I'm just a pawn in this story. At the moment, polygenic disease is still a toy in the hands of researchers.
