A new study indicates that gut bacteria are involved in a feedback loop that affects bodyweight in mice. We know that the types of bacteria in the gut of obese or diabetic people differ from people with a healthy weight.
In this study a high fat diet given to the mice caused the gut bacteria to release a chemical found to induce the parasympathetic nervous system to produce insulin and induce hunger, causing them to eat more. It may be that a better mix of gut bacteria may help the body alter this feedback loop. Listen for more at the link below.
