I recall having a conversation with an over weight acquaintance who insisted that her weight gain was attributed to her genetic make –up, admittedly, during the course of our conversation my cynicism did get the better of me, now before I receive a barrage of ‘fat phobic,’ accusations (yawn) please read on. It transpires that said acquaintance was indeed correct, well according to the science; our genes can reveal our sensitivity to carbohydrates, salt and caffeine, along with indicating lactose or gluten intolerance. DNA profiling can also assess injury risk, aerobic potential and physical endurance.
