Fat Factors Article in the NYT

  1. Oh that's pretty interesting, (perhaps) more microbes = more efficiency in calorie extraction = people that can gain weight more easily.
     
  2. Woah, what a cool article! Thanks for posting this. It makes sense- I always thought that people who were morbidly obese weren't the lazy slackers so many mean people make them out to be, just that their bodies are so incredibly efficient. The question I never asked myself is HOW their digestion process differs... I hope to hear more from this research project.
