(Best Syndication News) According to research published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, your popularity may be influenced by your genetic makeup. So if you aren’t popular you might be able to blame it on your parents.

The researchers, James H. Fowlera, Christopher T. Dawesa and Nicholas A. Christakis say that natural selection may have played a role in the evolution of social networks. Genes create a "significant impact" on our position in the popularity stakes. This could help explain why social rank is passed from one generation to the next.

French Paradox

For decades scientists have not been able to explain why French people suffer from fewer health ailments despite their high fat diet. Dubbed the French paradox, the high fat diet affords the French a lower heart disease rate than Americans. Researchers did notice that the French drank more red wine, which prompted some to investigate the substances inside wine.

Gene Mutation Linked To Low Triglyceride Levels – Amish Study May Lead To Cholesterol Treatment

Toni I. Pollin Ph.D

(Best Syndication News) Genetic research among the Old Order Amish population has produced insight into a gene mutation that may significantly reduce coronary artery disease. University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore scientists say that people with a mutation of the APOC3 gene have higher levels of HDL-cholesterol (“good” cholesterol) and lower levels of LDL-cholesterol (“bad” cholesterol).

Those with the gene mutation are lucky and their heritage can be traced back to a single person who was born back in the mid-1700s. The mutation is rare in the general population, but the discovery could lead to new therapies for others suffering from hypertension and cholesterol problems.

The 7 ft Tall 12 Year Old

One of a kind medical mystery is of a 7th graders who stands 7 ft. 3 in. tall named Brendon Adams who is only 12 years old. He was born at a normal weight.

(Best Syndication News) A new study suggests that obese people may get less pleasure from eating food when compared to lean people. Using genetics and brain scans, researchers in the United States discovered that obese subjects responded to a “tasty treat” with less vigor than their leaner counterparts.

Skinny People Get More Satisfaction From Food

Researchers at Yale University, The John B. Pierce Laboratory, the University of Texas and Oregon Research Institute, say that genetics plays a role in obesity. "The study is novel because it is the first to use brain response to food to try to predict future weight gain," said Dana Small, associate professor at Yale and associate fellow, The John B. Pierce Laboratory.
