Dr. Joseph A. Kuhn answered:

Is obesity genetic?

Obesity is Genetic

Genetic
Obesity clearly "runs in families". This is apparent by simply observing body appearances among parent and child. Now, we have found over 80 different genes that are preferentially found in obese individuals. The genes influence the metabolic rate (how many calories you burn), hunger hormone levels, fatty deposit tendencies, and many others. Identical twin studies also support a Gene answer.

Dr. Lisa Saponaro answered:

is obesity inherited?

Small portion

Dna
obesity is the product of many factors including genetics. Beginning at the cell level, moving to the familial, community, cultural, social, and national levels. The tremendous uptick in obesity rates is certainly not the product of altered genetics but rather an overall societal trends towards enormous portion sizes, high fat & sugary foods, and decreased physical activity.
