A new study conducted in Shanghai, China, discovered a highly probable link between gut bacteria and obesity.

The particular bacteria in question allows for the absorption of fats, yet does not allow the body to properly metabolize the fatty material; causing the body to store a high excess of this material within the human system.

A control for calorie intake was not possible as administering the diet with normal bacteria would cause unsustainable hunger, as the bacteria stops fat stores being mobilised and satiating the body, Mr Zhao said.

The Shanghai team fed a morbidly obese man a special diet designed to inhibit the bacterium linked to obesity and found that he lost 29 per cent of his body weight in 23 weeks. The patient was prevented from doing any exercise during the trial.


The particular diet the above mentioned subject received changed the pH levels within the gut, and thus reducing the bacteria’s ability to thrive – furthering the theory that a well alkalized body is more highly resilient when properly balanced.


The diet of whole grains, traditional Chinese medicines and non-digestible carbohydrates changed the pH in the gut which limited the bacterium’s activity.


If true – this study is a huge leap forward in the fight against poor health, and unsatisfactory lifestyle.

What, so eating far more than you need plays no part then?


Come on people, a bit of honesty is necessary regarding this issue. A percentage are fat through no fault of their own. This simply isn't the case in the vast majority of cases though. A little bit of honesty is essential when tackling this topic.

I have fat and thin friends. Friends being the key word - it makes no difference to me either way. You look at the individual, not the size.

I am not saying exercise has nothing to do with being fat - but this is mainly saying the foods we eat is causing the problem. Taking us out of balance.

For the last decade or more, nobody wants to be held accountable for whats wrong with them. Everything is someone elses or something elses fault.
First it was Genetics that caused fatassatidis, now its a bacteria but nooo it has nothing to do with the 3 hour set ins at the local all you can eat chinese buffet or the 10 big macs a day.

MentorsRiddle and Juggernog,

I think you are both correct. We eat food these days with a ridiculously high fat and salt content, undeniable.

At the same time, we live in an era where everything is someone else's fault.

People need to start being honest and take responsibility for themselves. If your ready made meal is full of fat, don't buy it. Make your own meal instead, out of fresh ingredients.

Why are people responding so negative to this?

The article isn't saying that bacteria is the only thing causing people to be fat - but any little thing that adavances our understanding of the human body is a great thing.

When a man loses 29% of body fat in less than six months, and not working out, there is a pretty good link that there may be underlying issues too. To deny that is to welcome falsehoods.

Because, we want to know why this bacteria seems to only be found in people in first world countries.
Why doesnt this bacteria thrive in places where people are lucky to get one or two meals a day?
Ive said the same thing about the "fat gene" theory for many years.

Well it's 100% related to what we ingest in our food.
All the additives and preservatives.
And I'll bet you that Corn Syrup has something to do with it also.
Everybody else uses sugar.

I've been on a diet for the past 3 weeks. I've cut sugar intake to one packet of sugar with my coffee per day.
I'm not eating bread, rice or pasta.
I was down to eating proteins and vegetables for the first two weeks.
I've added yogurt and nuts now.

With no exercise i've lost over 10 lbs with just the dietary change. Of course I'm a bit tired of eating salad all the time. But the benefit is worth it.

I'm betting the fat gene being turned on is due to all the chemicles and hormones being put into our food.

I agree. It is the 1st world diet that is the problem. To many people eating low nutritional foods, instead of high nutritional foods.

Everything is chemestry.

So being a lazy glutton is not a factor?

So many different issues could be making people fat.. How do we know that when we drink alcohol (being a disinfectant and all) that we aren't killing the bacterias that prevent the fatty crap getting through to our bodies etc. But it still wouldn't explain why children are becoming obese. Simply blaming one bacteria in your stomch just doesn't cut it with me. We need to take a look at what we are doing to ourselves before anything else.

This is quite informative information mentioned above regarding fat and weight increase.A percentage are fat through no fault of their own. This simply isn't the case in the vast majority of cases though. A little bit of honesty is essential when tackling this topic.
