fat-guy-in-chair-thumbIt is widely known that obesity can have negative impact your health, with many obese individuals typically suffering more medical problems than their leaner counterparts. Obese individuals are more likely to be diagnosed with joint issues, hypertension, insulin resistance, diabetes, hypothyroidism, increased stress hormones, and sleep apnea.

Researchers at the Georgia Health Sciences University in Augusta have also found the potential for something else, using an animal model. The researchers have found that a master clock gene, which regulates the cardiovascular system, does not fluctuate regularly in obese individuals.

The findings are believed to be the first of their kind.

The study entitled, “Impact of obesity on the vascular circadian clock,” was presented at the Experimental Biology 2011 meeting (EB 2011), held April 9-13, 2011 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, Washington, DC.
