Groundbreaking new research, linking obesity and metabolic dysfunction to a problem in the energy generators in cells, has been published by researchers from the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research and The University of Western Australia. The study, published in Science Advances, found that reduced function of a gene that impacts the breakdown of fats resulted in adult-onset obesity and fatty liver.
