Fitness, Health and Wellness Expert Dr. Veronica Anderson Publishes New Article Advocating Against Recent Scientific Research

Dr. Veronica Anderson, Founder and Host of web radio talk show, Wellness for the Real World, a weekly resource for wellness of mind, body and spirit, opposes the mindset behind recent genetic research that seeks to find a quick fix for weight loss.

NEW YORK, NY – June 4, 2011 – Dr. Veronica Anderson, Founder and Host of health and wellness web radio talk show, Wellness for the Real World, recently published an article on her website, reveals that scientific research, identifying a gene’s correlation to fat storage in the human body, is a reflection of our society’s lazy approach to health. The article, titled “Science’s Excuse to Neglect True Health” discusses the reasons why this genetic study implies that our scientists are searching for yet another magical weight loss pill, to the detriment of our true health.

Dr. Anderson writes, “Science is always right… right? Wrong! Recent scientific discoveries have been spun as a solution for our globe’s over-eating population, when in fact it’s a sad excuse for these folks to ignore the true path to health. According to an article written by Matthew Heller, and recently released in Fair Warning, a news source that reports on safety, health and corporate conduct, some British and Swiss genetic researchers have discovered that has implications for obesity-related health problems which as diabetes and heart disease. The researchers studied the relationship between a certain human gene that exists in fat tissue, and they claim that this gene could possibly act as a “master switch” for fat-storing behaviors in the human body.”

“This scientific discovery could lead to more excuses for people to be unhealthy. The fact that the scientists are even interested in correlating this gene with body fat storage proves that our population really just wants a quick fix rather than a lifestyle change. If people could just turn their own KLF14 gene “off” like a switch, then they could proceed to eat crap and be a couch potato. No need to eat veggies and visit the gym multiple times per week. Why work hard at taking proper care of your body if we can genetically modify ourselves to do the job?” says Dr. Anderson.
