    This is really interesting and could really be helpful. A new scientific study in London has revealed the KFL14 gene is in fact a "master switch" gene. The gene has already been linked to Type 2 diabetes and cholesterol amounts in the body.KLF14 controls the behavior of other genes found within fat in the body.This can be a major breakthrough in the search for treatments for diabetes and other obesity related diseases. I found this here: Gene found to control obesity and diabetes. A great news for those people who are suffering from this particular diseases.

    When a gene sits atop a signaling cascade responsible for regulating multiple metabolic pathways in the human body, the chances of ever designing a drug to target that gene effectively without severe adverse side effects are slim-to-none.
