Anyhoo, dh sits on NIH grant committees a couple of times a year and a few years back he ended up reviewing a couple of applications based on the types of exercise interventions that were the most effective in metabolic syndrome, early T2D etc.

Just to make it clear, dh didn't get these papers to review because he has the supreme good fortune of being married to me or because he's a former Rugby Superstar and Legend In His Own Mind but because of his field(s) of hepatology/transplant medicine..... reckons the next epidemic in end stage liver disease (and demand for a new liver) is going to come from obesity related fatty liver disease (you read it here!).... and research in mitochondrial DNA and stuff like that (which is the sort of stuff I don't have a grip on)

Having said that, my online trainer buddy is a young woman with a family history of T2D. Has never been fat herself and appears to be uber fit in the way my daughter is at about th same age. However, given her scientific background, has realised the implications of mitochondrial DNA being passed from generation to generation via the maternal line.

It's almost the reverse of me and my daughter when we race together. The ongoing joke is that when we cross the finish line she thanks me for my mitochondrial DNA and I reply that no, we both need to thank *Nana*.

Science nerds.....gotta love (or hate/treat with disdain etc.) us.
