DNA Diet Gives New Hope

The question is still not completely understood, which is why some people remain effortlessly slim. In a new European research project called Food4Me, researchers want to find out how you can motivate people for a healthier lifestyle for her taking into account their genetic predispositions and personal metabolism. This not only overweight should be addressed, but also for normal-weight people. From the European space approximately 1,200 volunteers have provided himself voluntarily, to question and measure to make. Researchers want to offer not only a new form of diet for obese people, but show also instance, as it is possible by selecting foods to achieve a high and healthy age. Still, the question is not fully understood why some people remain effortlessly slim and others, overweight, no diet correctly helps with weight loss.

The scientists suspect that the answer to plug into our heritage may: the genetic profile of a people is decrypted, can be advised in its food selection him. So the vision of researchers. Again, the food industry senses their business with much profit. Hardly anyone would lock yourself against a diet tailored to him or diet. On Food4me research at the Technical University of Munich and at the research centre of Nestle, a food manufacturer in Lausanne.

Formed 10 years ago the Central Institute for nutrition and food research of Technical University of Munich as a branch. Since modern laboratories examines how nutrients impact in the human organism. Currently being researched intensively in the FTO gene (fat mass and obesity related). It is the instruction of an enzyme which can activate other genes. The researchers found that FTO particularly acts in the hypothalamus, the brain area that is responsible for the feeling and the control of hunger and satiety. The FADS2 gene is also used by researchers analysis, however, it is different for different people. The relationships are complicated, but revealing. You display the food for which people is most legible. The ApoE4 gene increases the risk of atherosclerosis, strokes and heart attacks. Therefore is also tested on this gene down. Extensive research looking for new food products run in the Nestle Group. One of the most important scientists of this new research facility is famous of Americans Baetge, through its stem cell research. Using new technologies and also clinical trials he investigated natural materials, which are suitable for the food industry. We wanted to develop a medical food, which requires a doctor’s prescription. The probably most surprising finding from the Food4Me study the question might be: How can we change people in their habits and motivate them sustainable and positive? That could succeed, the scientific, in-depth and individual are the recommendations and find physical movements for granted in everyday space.
