To be efficient, LD mapping should be integrated with both genetic and functional studies. For example, tissue profiling may provide the most direct way of improving overall understanding of the molecular circuitry maintaining energy homoeostasis. Therefore, expression profiling in humans on the one hand, and genetic analysis of populations on the other, will provide complementary tools to advance our understanding of the complex network of gene–gene and gene–environment interactions underlying the susceptibility to obesity.

1999). Baseline data on 5-year-old children from the EarlyBird Study find no evidence to support the catch-up hypothesis. We divided the children into two groups, those above and those below median weight at birth. We also divided them into those above or below the median weight at five years, thus producing four cells. One group was of relatively low birth weight and remained relatively low-weight at 5 years of age (low– low). Another group was relatively light at birth and relatively heavy at 5 years (low–high), that is, the catch-up group.

This message is important because a characteristic that is programmed may be difficult to alter, whereas one acquired after birth is potentially modifiable. Physical activity is undoubtedly a key factor in the development of childhood obesity, as suggested by further, preliminary data from the EarlyBird Study where each child has worn a physical activity monitor, during waking hours, for 7-day periods. These accelerometers are smaller than a matchbox, unobtrusive and well tolerated. 3). The data show, first, an almost threefold difference between the most active and least active child.
