DESCRIPTION: Studies on more than a thousand children suggest that a viral infection may play a role in childhood obesity by increasing both the number and size of fat cells.
Other unconventional theories about obesity are explored in my videos Obesity-Causing Pollutants in Food (http://www.nutritionfacts.org/video/obesity-causing-pollutants-in-food) and Gut Flora & Obesity (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/gut-flora-obesity/).
