Bacteria & Fat Loss : Possible Link With Certain Bacteria & Weight loss

Remember…a finding from one study in isolation doesn’t mean a theory is set in stone, however if both the impact factor of the journal it was published in (how good its reputation is) is high and the authors come with some validity, then it’s certainly worth considering.

A study recently featured on BBC news showed that taking the gut bacteria from obese people and placing it into mice led to the animals gaining weight, conversely bacteria from lean people kept the fat off!

More food for thought in the battle against obesity! Lets see what future studies have in store and if they are in concurrence with this study.
