Does neighbourhood deprivation affect the genetic influence on body mass?

Gwilym Owen, Kelvyn Jones, Richard Harris
2017 Social Science and Medicine  
This heritability estimate is shown, however, to be higher in more deprived neighbourhoods and lower in less deprived ones and this relationship is statistically significant.  ...  While this research cannot say anything directly about the mechanisms behind the relationship it does highlight how the relative importance of genetic factors can vary across different social environments  ...  Alternatively it may be that there are aspects of obesogenic environments that moderate genetic vulnerability to obesity and that cause changes in the relationship between specific genes and obesity.  ...
