The 3 year old who died because of being obese that highlighted the case for preventing obesity could have had a genetic defect that caused their death.
BBC News Story

From the BBCLast month a report by MPs on obesity prompted headline news when it included an account of the girl who weighed six stone when she died.
It sparked a debate about junk food, parental responsibility and exercise.
But scientists have told the BBC Radio 4's Today programme genetic abnormalities caused the girl's death.

She may have had a condition where her body kept telling her she was starving. Unfortunately, the condition could have been treated but they only found out after her death.
