I've posted other epigenetics studies on of which demonstrated negative genetic outcomes of children of mothers who were in starvation scenarios while pregnant.
Many people don't have an appreciation how methylation impacts turning on and off gene expression. I have no doubt that there are much more profound implications to iheritability of obesity and type2 diabetes as this article suggests.
There is very much a notion in society that thin people have will power and fat people don't. We constantly as humans over estimate our powers to control ourselves.
That is not to say that there is no control ability in humans and those with type 2 diabetes can't and shouldn't try to eat healthy. It however does mean that people may be in a genetically disadvantaged position versus others when it comes to metabolic diseases and don't deserve the level of scorn many give them.
