Genetic/Environment Interactions and Obesity

How much of our body weight is determined by genetics, and how much is determined by our environment? The International Society for Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity (ISBNPA) wrestled with the answer to that question at its annual convention this summer in Quebec, Canada. The society gathered together some of the leading researchers on the subject and asked them to share some of their findings. For this monthís thought bullets, I share a few of the highlights of those findings with you.
