Bulging waistlines can be blamed on genes
Genes are largely to blame for bulging waistlines, a study has found.
While diet plays a key role in obesity, some people are programmed to get fat easily, research from the US suggests.

Lead scientist Dr Brian Parks, from the University of California at Los Angeles, said: “Our research demonstrates that body-fat responses to high-fat, high-sugar diets have a very strong genetic component.”
