Douglas Knell, a professor of genetics and research supervisor, explained that some people, especially men who possess this gene, are at greater risk of low body fat, but are also more likely to suffer from chronic diseases such as heart and type 2 diabetes.

The research reviewed the data of more than 75,000 people and reviewed their genes and fat rates in their bodies, where the follow-up indicated that the gene works to high the level of bad cholesterol and blood sugar, which doubles their chances of developing chronic diseases.
