The Bacteria and Obesity in Pets Connection
Dr. Tudor writes about a recent study linking a stomach bacteria (Enterobacter cloacae) to obesity. Interesting stuff. But realize that the primary cause of being overweight is that your body is burning less calories than it is consuming. I wonder, too, if there is any causation between being overweight and the level of this bacteria– i.e. does being overweight/obese result in higher levels of the bacteria?
