Obesity can negatively affect DNA

Obesity is one of the most indicative and widespread problems in many regions and areas of the world, especially in the western hemisphere – and, even more dangerous, in some of the most indicative forms of obesity, a person can experience quite serious fundamental changes in the work of their genes and DNA. These are the conclusions that the research team from the Obesity Research Unit at Helsinki State University came to, as they managed to find really compelling evidence that adipose tissue in most obese people cannot function as nature intended.

The main problem of adipose tissue in the presence of one or another degree of obesity lies in the fact that the work of the so-called mitochondrial genes in the adipose tissue structure is disrupted inside it – in other words, with obesity, internal "production plants" of special proteins and peptides that control the burning and processing of fat, cannot function in a normal way, which leads to additional accumulation of body fat and to some side effects from among not the most pleasant ones.

Of course, in this sense, it is always worth being careful about the end result of obesity, and the Finnish research team definitely takes into account the fact that the overwhelming majority of obese people cannot properly cope with these internal problems. That is why the presented study was compiled, as a reminder of the need to monitor health conditions as closely as possible in case of a tendency to obesity.

It is worth noting the fact that Finnish researchers also found a certain relationship between the disruption of the internal energy factories of adipose tissue and the disruption of the work of indigenous mitochondria – and this can affect health in such a way that the wrong type of genes is fixed in a person. As a result, the subsequent offspring may already have damaged DNA, which will affect the characteristics and aspects of the formation of metabolism.
