Abstract

Recent research suggests that obesity may be influenced not only by dietary and genetic risk factors, but also by the trillions of microorganisms inhabiting our gastrointestinal tract. Consistent with this notion, Cho et al. (2012) use mice to demonstrate that subtherapeutic antibiotic treatment promotes adiposity.
