Certain genetic traits may predispose people to being more or less motivated to exercise and remain active, a new research from theUniversity of Missouri has suggested.
Frank Booth, a professor in the MU College of Veterinary Medicine, along with his post-doctoral fellow Michael Roberts, were able to selectively breed rats that exhibited traits of either extreme activity or extreme laziness. They said these rats indicate that genetics could play a role in exercise motivation, even in humans.
“We have shown that it is possible to be genetically predisposed to being lazy,” Booth said.
