Scientists have found that a gene linked to diabetes and cholesterol is a "master switch" that controls other genes found in fat in the body, and say it should help in the search for treatments for obesity-related diseases.
In a study published in the journal Nature Genetics, the British researchers said that since fat plays an important role in peoples' susceptibility to metabolic diseases like obesity, heart disease and diabetes, the regulating gene could be target for drugs to treat such illnesses.

Here's a 'master switch' gene for obesity America. Eat less, eat more 'real' food, exercise more, stop eating fast food.
Oh, wait, it's not a quick-fix. Never mind then.

seems interesting though.. amused to see the people who think metabolic diseases are due to poor diet and exercise alone... theirs so much more to it...

You seem to be forgetting that, as you put it 'real food', costs nearly three times as much as its processed counterpart.
Sure am glad you're making the big dollars and can afford it, most of us can't.
