The rising prevalence of type 2 diabetes around the world and the global pattern of variation in risk between countries have been widely attributed to an interplay between rising rates of obesity and poor lifestyles, and genetic or developmental susceptibility to disease. Although this general hypothesis has been in existence for more than 50 years, the precise mechanisms that may explain it have remained uncertain. Advances in technology and the application of new methods in large scale population studies have made it possible to study these mechanisms. The InterAct project, funded by the European Commission, is a large case-cohort study which has verified 12,403 incident cases of type 2 diabetes, facilitating the study of genetic and lifestyle factors on the risk of type 2 diabetes among European populations.

Lancet Diabetes Endocrinol. 2014. doi: 10.1016/S2213-8587(14)70146-9. This article highlights that different individual saturated fatty acids are heterogeneous in associations with incident type 2 diabetes including some with postive and some with inverse associations, highlighting the need to gain a deeper insight into the role of dietary versus endogenous influences on circualting saturated fatty acids.
