Good news: Scientists discover "skinny gene"

Researchers at Imperial College London and Switzerland’s University of Lausanne said Thursday that people with duplications of chromosome 16 were more likely to be skinny.

They studied the DNA of over 95,000 people and found that the genetic duplication affected one in 2,000 — making men 23 times and women five times more likely to be underweight.
