Caption: Addiction researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have noticed an unexpected link between alcoholism risk and obesity. They report when a person has a genetic risk for alcoholism, that individual also is likely to be at risk for obesity, and the risks of obesity seem to be increasing among people in that group. Jim Dryden has the story.
