This book comprehensively accounts the current understanding of genetic mechanisms of obesity by analyzing obesity phenotypes and genotypes and, gene polymorphisms and mutations, and current results from animal model research and genetic studies in human models. By presenting the impact of genetic factors in the development of obesity and key molecules related to the pathophysiology of the disease, this source hopes to pinpoint new pathways for the prevention and management of obesity in various populations.
Unfortunately murine studies feature large and waste a considerable portion of this book. Since the appalling barbarity of the NAZI's work on Jews and past US studies on blacks are history, this can't be helped, I suppose. The problem is that science has found the holy grail of a pill to cure obesity, but it only works with mice -- whoopee!
