Announcing the ranking of prefectures with many genotypes that tend to be leaner when carrot intake is high! 1st place Tottori prefecture, 2nd place Miyazaki prefecture, 3rd place Shimane prefecture
The Sanin and Tohoku regions ranked high

Euglena Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Minato-ku, Tokyo, President: Mitsuru Izumo) is based on the genome data of Euglena MyHealth and Gene Quest’s genetic analysis service, in connection with this year’s zodiac “Rabbit”. We will release the “Prefectural (place of birth*) ranking” that has many genotypes that tend to be leaner when the frequency of carrot intake is high.

Euglena MyHealth and GeneQuest’s genetic analysis service analyzes more than 300 genotypes regarding individual health risks,
constitution, and ancestry to determine what diseases are likely to occur and what kind of constitutional genetic tendencies. It is a service that provides results about what there is.
So far, we have published rankings of various genotypes by prefecture based on the genome data of more than 20,000 users of the genetic analysis services of Euglena MyHealth and GeneQuest. In connection with “Rabbit”, pay attention to the data on carrots, which are one of the representative vegetables that rabbits like. The item “Frequency of carrot intake and BMI (SNP: rs4445711)” was analyzed. Carrots are rich in carotenoid antioxidants such as β-carotene, α-carotene, and β-cryptoxanthin, and these carotenoids help prevent arteriosclerosis, cell aging, cancer, and diabetes. is also considered to be effective, and the relationship with BMI (body mass index) and obesity is also attracting attention.
The genetic analysis item “Frequency of carrot intake and BMI (SNP: rs4445711)” is an item about the relationship between the frequency of carrot intake and BMI (body mass index). (Genotype: GG)”, “A type that tends to be thin when the frequency of carrot intake is high (Genotype: AG)”, “A type that is unlikely to be associated with the frequency of carrot intake and the tendency to be thin (Genotype: AA)” There are three. In this survey, we calculated and quantified the percentage of people who fall under the type of people who tend to be thinner when they eat carrots more frequently (genotype: GG) by prefecture (place of birth).
Based on the above analysis results, the prefectures with a relatively high percentage of people with genotypes that tend to be leaner when carrot intake is high are 1st Tottori, 2nd Miyazaki, 3rd Shimane, and 4. 1st Iwate, 5th Nagasaki, 6th Fukui, 7th Fukushima, 8th Ibaraki, 9th Akita, 10th Miyagi, and many of the Sanin and Tohoku regions ranked high.

The percentage of genotypes among Japanese people was 11.3% for those who tended to become leaner when the frequency of carrot intake was higher (genotype: GG), and 11.3% for those who tended to become leaner when the frequency of carrot intake was high. Type (genotype: AG)” accounted for 45.7%, and “type (genotype: AA) that is unlikely to be associated with the frequency of carrot intake and thinness tendency” accounted for 43%.

■Survey overview
Survey method: Survey based on genome data analysis
Survey target: Users of “Euglena MyHealth Genetic Analysis Service” and “GeneQuest ALL”
Number of subjects: Genome data: 21,371
Survey period: December 2022
Survey item: Percentage of people who fall under the category of “Frequency of carrot intake and BMI (SNP: rs4445711)” in the genome data, “The type that tends to be leaner when the frequency of carrot intake is high (genotype: GG)” calculated for each prefecture About the genetic analysis item “Frequency of carrot intake and BMI (SNP: rs4445711)”
In joint research by Gene Quest and the Department of Hematology, Endocrinology and Metabolism, Niigata University School of Medicine, genomic analysis was performed on more than 12,000 Japanese people, and gene regions that interact with the intake frequency of several vegetables related to obesity. explored. As a result, we discovered that there is a genotype that interacts with the frequency of carrot intake regarding BMI (body mass index). This genotype is “SNP: rs4445711”, and it was found that the type with “G” tends to have a significantly lower BMI when the frequency of eating carrots is higher.
Many studies have shown that people who eat a lot of vegetables are less likely to become obese. There have been very few reports to date. These research results were published on September 30, 2021 in the international nutrition journal Nutrients (IF: 5.717).

■ About “Euglena MyHealth Gene Analysis Service”
This is a service that analyzes over 300 genotypes regarding individual health risks, genetic tendencies of constitution, and ancestral roots. You can check your constitution such as
susceptibility to gaining weight, genetic information related to the risk of developing diseases such as cancer and diabetes, and what you can do to prevent diseases. In addition, since the constitution and the onset of diseases are greatly influenced not only by genetic factors, but also by environmental factors such as diet and living environment, understanding one’s own genetic information is a hint when reviewing one’s lifestyle habits.
