Some people don’t have to fight the battle against the bulge.
And they may have their biological makeup to thank.
A new, preliminary study says a gene may help some people stay slim.
An international scientific team found a genetic variant that’s unique to thin people.
The researchers say the ALK gene, which creates protein that’s involved with cell growth, could lead to a new era in the fight against obesity.
The findings published in the journal Cell were based on clinical data gathered during a study of nearly 48,000 people who were between 20 and 44 years old.
