Preference for high fat foods? May be genetically determined — people.com.cn Hainan window — people.com.cn 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 "". Surprisingly, studies have shown that people with unique genes and high fat preferences actually have lower sugar tastes. The study was published in the online journal Nature Communications. Study co-author and University of Cambridge’s Farooqi (Sadaf Farooqi) said: "our study shows that, even if the appearance and taste of the strict control of food, the brains of people can still detect nourishing food." Other researchers at 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%). It’s 65% higher than obese people without genetic defects. Studies have shown that people with MC4R deficiency tend to prefer high-fat foods without knowing themselves. MC4R is only 1 of the genes that are involved in obesity. The study found that 1100 overweight people had MC4R deficiency, which made them more likely to gain weight.

偏爱吃高脂肪食物?研究称可能是基因决定–人民网海南视窗–人民网   据法新社报道,最新研究指出,拥有一种独特变异基因的人,会比其他人更偏爱高脂肪食物,说明人们的饮食偏好可能有部分已“天生注定”。   意外的是,研究显示基因独特而偏好高脂肪的人,反而在糖分品尝上有所降低。这篇研究刊登于在线期刊《自然通讯》(Nature Communications)上。   研究的共同作者、剑桥大学的法鲁奇(Sadaf Farooqi)说:“我们的研究显示,纵使严格管制食物的外观与味道,人们的大脑仍能探查出滋养的食物。”另有其他剑桥大学的研究者参与这项研究。   法鲁奇与研究团队测试14名带有罕见变异MC4R基因过胖者的食物偏好,并与其他没有这种基因的过胖者、瘦子等做比较。参与测试的人可以享用吃到饱的咖哩鸡肉,但咖哩鸡肉分为3道,唯一差别只在于总热量中的脂肪比例,受测者只能在20%脂肪、40%脂肪、60%脂肪3种中选1种,3道料理都做成一样,受测者不知3道菜有何不同。   剑桥大学在一项声明里说,研究者发现,尽管3种不同受测者吃的总量大致上没有差别,有MC4R基因缺陷者吃高脂肪料理,却近乎是瘦子的2倍(多了95%)。也比没有基因缺陷的过胖者高了65%。   研究指出,MC4R有缺陷者,恐因此较偏好高脂肪食物而不自知。   MC4R目前仅是与过胖有关的数种基因中的1种。研究认为,1 100过胖者的MC4R基因存有缺陷,让他们可能更易发胖。 (责编:刘阳阳、陈海燕)相关的主题文章:
