A human’s genes are passed on randomly each generation, which influence how much we eat, sleep, drink, exercise, and more.

These genetic influences are not impacted by lifestyle choices made by an individual over the years. Given this, scientists can look at genetic variants for a particular risk factor — in this case, lifelong physical activity levels and sedentary behavior — to try and establish cause and effect.RELATED: Study suggests genetic cancer risks could be enhanced by metabolism"Increasing physical activity and reducing sedentary time are already recommended for cancer prevention.
