A common gene (CLTCL1) mutation helps people cope with modern diets by keeping blood sugar low, but close to half of people still have an older variant that may be better suited to prehistoric diets, finds a new study. "
Lead author: Dr Frances Brodsky; co-author: Professor Mark Thomas (UCL Genetics, Evolution & Environment)
The latter is quoted as saying " “Our analyses strongly suggest that we have found yet another example of how prehistoric changes in dietary habits have shaped human evolution. Understanding how we have adapted to these changes doesn’t only inform us about why people lived or died in the past, but also helps us to better understand the relationship between diet, health and disease today.”
Is this old or new news? Is it a partial answer/comment on the topic Is a high-sugar diet ok for any subset of people](https://www.ketogenicforums.com/t/is-a-high-sugar-diet-ok-for-any-subset-of-people/6182)
Has anyone on this forum checked out his/her CLTCL1 gene variant, and if so, did it help explain anything, or suggest a particular course of action?
