Obesity is one of the major health problems in the world, in Mexico the combined prevalence of overweight and obesity in school-age children is 34.4%. The weight gain starts during childhood, in its origin, environmental factors, lifestyle and genetic predisposition is involved. Have identified approximately 97 loci with single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) associated with obesity and impaired body mass index (BMI), however these do not explain the observed phenotypic variability, suggesting that other forms of variation in the DNA may explain the rest of heritability.
