  1. A lot of people may claim that obesity runs in their family and they could be right to a certain extent. Children of obese parents tend to become overweight themselves as suggested by Dr. Peyton T. Taylor, Jr, although it’s not clear whether or not this is due to genetics, or because the family is likely to be eating the same foods and teaching the same bad habits.
