Gut organisms could be clue in controlling obesity risk


www.gdaguru.com today reports that scientists are researching the possibility that the mix of intestinal bacteria with which we are endowed might directly influence our risk for obesity. 28-04-2012

Physiologists have long known that our intestines are brimming with live bacteria, some of which provide important substances (e.g., vitamin B-12) to their host.
 
However, research conducted over the last decade suggests that these organisms, often referred to as intestinal microbiota, may play a far greater role in human health than previously imagined.
 
Obese individuals tend to have different microbial profiles in their intestines than lean individuals, and scientists have learned that the bacteria common to obesity may metabolize the food we eat in a way that allows us to harvest more calories from it and deposit those calories as fat.
