What causes obesity?

Obesity is normally the result of excessive calorie intake, a lack of healthy exercise, or a combination of the two. Sometimes disease or pre-existing conditions can also be a contributing factor. Consuming fewer calories or increasing regular exercise leads to weight loss, but exactly how beneficial these actions are to weight reduction for a particular person depends very much on his/her genetic makeup.

Top 5 Questions When Shopping for DNA Genetic Testing

Not all DNA Genetic tests are created equal.

Some say we are in the age of a biotech boom! Genetic testing is gaining more and more recognition and becoming less and less scary, but most people still think all genetic tests are alike. The most well known genetic testing companies have dramatically expanded the array of their genetic tests and lowered the price making the final report more informative at a price everyone can afford. This is happening, in part, due to advancing technologies allowing sequencing of more genes at a lesser cost compared to years past. Within the next year, hundreds of thousands of people are expected to participate in genetic testing in the United States alone. It is anticipated that this number will continue to increase due to the plunge in costs as technology becomes widely prevalent. There are many types of genetic tests out there and are wildly different from each other.

This is a problem because these nutrients can lower our risk for heart disease, stroke, cancer, to keep our immune system healthy, and other health conditions.
