Prefer to eat high fat food? May be genetically determined — Hainan window — Agence France-Presse reported that the latest research, the study pointed out that has a unique gene variant, have a preference for fatty foods more than others, that people eating preferences, some of which may be born "". Unexpectedly, studies have shown that people who are genetically unique to those who prefer high fat are less likely to have a taste for sugar. The study is published in the online journal Communications (Nature). "Our study shows that even if the food is strictly controlled by the appearance and taste of the food, the brain is able to detect the nourishing food," said, a co-author of the study at the University of Cambridge, Farooqi (Sadaf)." Other researchers at the University of Cambridge participated in the study. Farooqi and research team tested 14 rare variants of MC4R gene with fat food preferences, and compare with other genes without this fat, thin etc.. The participants can enjoy to eat chicken curry bread, but curry chicken is divided into 3, the only difference lies in that the total heat in the proportion of fat, subjects only in 20%, 40%, 60% fat fat fat 3 in 1, 3 dishes are made of the same, the subjects do not know 3 dish the difference. University of Cambridge said in a statement, the researchers found that, although 3 different subjects have roughly the total no difference, there are defects in the MC4R gene were eating high fat dishes, but almost 2 times the thin (more than 95%). Is also 65% higher than those without genetic defects. Studies have shown that people with MC4R deficiency are more likely to prefer high fat foods without knowing it. MC4R is currently only 1 of several genes associated with obesity. The study found that 1100 of obese people with MC4R gene defects, so that they may be more fat.
