Studies of 1,725 normal weight, 1,519 overweight, and 681 obese individuals from the population-based Inter99 cohort stratified according to number of validated BMI/obesity risk-alleles. The percentage of normal weight and overweight/obese individuals stratified according to different risk-allele count in the population-based Inter99 cohort. The odds ratio comparing the lowest percentile (≤14 risk-alleles) with the highest percentile (≥22 risk-alleles) was calculated using Fisher exact test. Only individuals with successful genotyping for all 20 variants were included.
