Tummy Fat Reducation Mechanism | Tummy Fat Reducation Remedies

An international team has carried out a study and found that bacteria in an obese's stomach could be responsible for the unwanted pounds, the latest edition of the 'Science' journal reported.

The bugs, which are found in the digestive tract, are thought to boost appetite. They appear to cause cholesterol and blood pressure problems and raise the odds of diabetes and liver disease, the scientists say.

Although the scientists discovered the tummy bug link in experiments on mice, the results are relevant to human waistlines, according to the study. "It has been assumed that the obesity epidemic in the developed world is driven by an increasing sedentary lifestyle and the abundance of low-cost high-calorie foods.
"However, our results suggest that intestinal bacteria contribute to changes in appetite and metabolism," team leader Andrew Gewirtz of Emory University in Atlanta was quoted by the 'Daily Mail' as saying.

He said cleaner water supplies and the widespread use of antibiotics may have paved the way for the emergence of such bugs.

The research focused on mice genetically engineered to be prone to bacterial infection. They were found to put weight on more quickly than other creatures.

Fed on high-fat food, they rapidly developed full- blown diabetes and fatty liver disease. When the scientists "transplanted" some of the tummy bugs from these mice into normal, healthy animals, they also piled on the pounds.
