Today I will talk about a very interesting recent study in mice. It has been shown that inoculation of our gut bacteria from the intestine of mice disrupts their metabolism so that when inoculated bacteria of thin, their metabolism is accelerated and lost weight, and when inoculated bacteria of obese people, their slowed metabolism and increased weight. The results of the study have been published in the journal Science.
The study was conducted by researchers at the University Of Washington (USA) and has not only shown that our bacteria alter the normal metabolism of mice. It also shows that diet is a key factor in the type of biota that houses the body.
The bacteria were obtained from women who had a twin weight difference thus scientists ensure the reliability of the study as the intestinal flora is very similar in people with a very close relationship. (more…)
