Title Maybe your genes made you eat it
Date 2000-03
Description Another snack? The queston is: why do people eat? Is it anxiety, habbit, immediate gratification? Or, do your genes make you do it? Could there be a genetic predisposition to obesity , a genetic defect that makes some people hungrier more often than others? If a genetic link is found and a drug can be developed to correct the defect, greater control of this worldwide epidemic would be possible.
