Tyypin 2 diabetes--perinnöllinen kohtalo vai hyvinvointiyhteiskunnan rangaistus?

Groop, Leif LU (2014) In Duodecim 130(22-23). p.2339-2346
Abstract
The pandemic of type 2 diabetes is threatening the entire world population. The number of obese people in the world has quadrupled over the last 30 years. It is clear that the human genome has not undergone such a rapid change, and thus alone does not explain the increased obesity. In fact, the rapidly changing society seems to be on a collision course with the genome. Through gene research we may hopefully learn the mechanisms by which the genome of some people makes them susceptible to type 2 diabetes while simultaneously protecting against the effects of unfavorable environmental factors and diabetes.
