Obesity is Caused by a Virus
The concept behind this theory is that the sudden, widespread change in human girth occurred not because we eat too much processed food or too much fat. Instead, investigators theorize there is a virus which might cause us to overeat, never feel full, and/or slow our metabolism so that we pack on weight. This could explain why obesity affects even little kids and exists in some pretty odd places, such as India and China. This isn’t as far out as you think. The theory has been nicknamed “infectobesity” and here is what we do know:
· There have been correlations between certain types of viruses and obesity.
· The AD-36 adenovirus or “fat virus” increases body fat in animals.
· Other body chemicals associated with obesity are called “obesogens.”
