Your grandma's diet could have made you obese, mouse study suggests


The negative side-effects of gorging on a high-fat diet could be passed on to great-grandchildren, a study in mice has suggested. Rodents who were fed a fat-heavy diet were more likely to have pups that were obese and insulin-resistant, even if they were not obese themselves, researchers found. The mouse equivalent of addictive behaviors towards drugs also appeared to be inherited by offspring. Even great-grandchildren were impacted, with females more prone to addictive behaviors and males experiencing obesity.
