The life expectancy can be increased if you remove the obesity gene

The life expectancy can be increased if you remove the obesity gene Researchers from the United States during the recent experiments have established that the remote experimental purposes FAT10 gene in rodents can increase their life expectancy.Formerly known obesity gene that delays the fats in the body was removed from the treated mice, as a result of which they began to consume more food, however, changes in the direction of increasing weight were recorded.

After removing the mouse FAT10 retain their normal weight or lose weight while eating more food than before the experiment.In addition, laboratory rodents are living much longer.That is why experts have concluded about the enormous benefits of obesity gene modification.So far, the scientists see virtually some pluses: overweight is reduced, the body is aging more slowly, and overall 20 percent increased life expectancy.

Although not without fly in the ointment: the mouse after the experiments began to look anemic, because scientists now have to look more closely at the process of removing FAT10, to find a "mi

ddle ground" between the weight loss and the normal state of the immune system.
