At DNAfit, we have a strict inclusion protocol to evaluate whether a gene will be included in our reports. Each gene must have a minimum of 3-peer reviewed studies in humans demonstrating the effect, there must be a consensus on that effect, and that effect must be modifiable through an environmental and lifestyle change.
Below is a sample of our evidence base for saturated fat sensitivity:
Association between fat intake, physical activity and mortality depending on genetic variation in FTO
A high intake of saturated fat strengthens the association between the fat mass and obesity-associated gene
Association between the APOA2 promoter polymorphism and body weight in Mediterranean and Asian populations: replication of a gene-saturated fat interaction
