High-calorie foods such as ice cream cakes, fast food, etc. have become a favorite of the people in this village. Simply because they are not afraid of being fat.
Limone sul Garda, a village in Lombardia, eastern Italy. This villager possesses a rare gene that is said to be able to “destroy” any fat put into the body.
Accordingly, this gene called “Limone” has the ability to destroy fat molecules introduced into the body, preventing them from being absorbed into the body. This special ability helps the people here never seem to be afraid of obesity.
They can comfortably enjoy high-calorie foods such as candy, fast food, carbonated drinks, fatty meats, etc. without having to worry about measuring 3 rounds.
Scientists have been conducting research and surveying this village for more than 40 years. Out of 1000 people, more than half are from the village, born and raised here. And only about 60-100 people out of that half have the Limone gene.
Gianni Segala, a villager said:
“It’s a heritable gene. My mother is almost 100 years old this year and my brother has this gene, the children in the family have it too. Many scientists have studied our blood samples and come to the same conclusion.”
The tests were very simple, he said, the doctor would feed the participants large amounts of ice cream and sweets, repeated every two hours to monitor the amount of sugar and fat in the body. But, as soon as it entered the digestive system, Gianni Segala’s blood immediately destroyed all the fats and refused to absorb them. The doctor must have marveled at this possibility.
“If that’s the case, they never have to worry about obesity, overweight, fatty blood, …”. The doctors said.
Giuliano Segala, Gianni’s son, considers this particular gene a bargain, an insurance for health.
“I’m more confident when I enjoy food because I’m never afraid of obesity or clogged arteries.”
The people of this village when asked to take tests and surveys are very happy, they also call themselves “white mice” and joke about it. It is true that Segala’s family and everyone in the village have extremely slim and strong bodies. They comfortably enjoy all kinds of high-calorie and greasy foods and drinks such as meat, sausages, canned goods, animal fats, ….
“I never even had a stomach ache, so I ate whatever I liked. But that’s not why I eat too much, I still exercise regularly to maintain the most supple body.”
It is known that Segala’s father and son often practice by climbing the mountains of the Alps next to the village, both to enjoy the scenery and to exercise.
The villagers of Limone sul Garda are considered by many to be superheroes due to their possession of this special gene. However, they are still just ordinary people, just a little more special.
Cesare Sirtori, professor at the Università degli Studi di Milano, led the team to study the special gene of the villagers of Limone sul Garda. He pointed out that people in the village have very low HDL cholesterol levels, while the average person is 40-60, while the people here are only around 7-15. The most convincing conclusion is that it is genetic, but where it comes from is still unknown.
Sirtori and his team are looking to see if the Limone gene, in addition to its “anti-fat” effect, can also fight atherosclerosis and a number of other diseases and whether the Limone villagers are the only ones. possess this gene.
Ignoring the particular genetic problem that makes many people curious, Limone sul Garda is a beautiful village with many landscapes, so it is extremely attractive to tourists, plus a warm climate all year round. Tourists can enjoy the freshest dishes with drops of olive oil processed and preserved in the most advanced ways.
