BBC News - DNA test 'could predict most effective diet' -
March 6, 2010
It’s very interesting to find the genetic component of a human being also affect whether particular diet works on him/her. Although it has been mentioned that the study had looked at a very small number of people, I think it is worth to look into it for more details and see if this aspect of a human will affect the effectiveness of a particular diet. This also reminds me, during
lecture, it has been mentioned that bacteria in bodies also affect whether a mouse is obese or not. I think problems like whether the genotypes of a human affect the bacteria in bodies and thus affect the effectiveness of the diet can be investigate more. So that more useful information about how to deal with obesity can be found. -
The paper with the link between obesity and the microbiome was Turnbaugh et al (2006) "An obesity-associated gut microbiome with increased capacity for energy harvest"
