The derived allele at SNP (A54T), rs1799883, in FABP2 increases strongly with latitude (p < 0.01) [PMID 18282109] fulltext

  • rs1801282 Pro12Ala of the PPARG gene, CG and GG's are told to watch their fat intake. CC is the most common genotype
  • rs1042713 Beta-2 adrenergic receptor (ADRB2) Arg16Gly (B16)
  • rs1042714 Beta-2 adrenergic receptor (ADRB2) Gln27Glu (B27)

Glu27Gln (rs1042714; B27) and the Arg16Gly (rs1042713; B16) polymorphisms of the ADRB2 gene= C allele associated with higher insulin levels and possibly oxidization. There's a reference about this gene and the mediteranian diet and olive oil.

balanced diet approach:

  • rs1801282(C;C) & rs1042714(G;G)

low saturated fat, Mediterranean type diets

  • Rs1801282(C;G) & Rs1042714(C;C)
  • Rs1801282(C;G) & Rs1042714(C;G)
  • Rs1801282(G;G) & Rs1042714(C;C)
  • Rs1801282(G;G) & Rs1042714(C;G)

These two are unclear as Mediterranean vs Atkins

  • Rs1801282(G;G) & Rs1042714(C;C)
