Poll: Researchers who conducted a recent study in the U.K. have identified four new genetic markers for severe childhood obesity. What is the most intriguing development?
Genetic factors in childhood obesity that are different from those in adult obesity may require separate forms of treatment
The possibility of even more genetic variants related to childhood obesity that have yet to be discovered
The variability of how these genes interact with other factors, including lifestyle behaviors
The promise that these genetic variants in severe cases of childhood obesity hold for more common forms of weight gain
