Obesity: Is it about the cards you were dealt, or how you play them?

Nature vs. nurture has been an interesting debate when it comes to combating the obesity pandemic.

In a modern environment that largely promotes overeating, inactivity, and sleeplessness, how much does the weight actually rely on the genes?

The lecture is looking into this by comparing sets of twins who are genetically identical, grew up together, but, unusually, had large differences in weight: healthy weight vs. obesity.

By investigating their lifestyle habits, one might uncover behaviors that are changeable regardless of influences from DNA or childhood upbringing in order to support obesity prevention and weight loss.
