"Previous research has suggested that bacteria can influence how well energy is absorbed from food, but these [new] findings demonstrate that intestinal bacteria can actually influence appetite," Gewirtz explained.

He said the findings from mice suggest "that it's possible to 'inherit' metabolic syndrome through the environment, rather than genetically. Do obese children get that way because of bad parenting? Maybe bacteria that increase appetite are playing a part."
I had heard something related to viruses and obesity, but this is different. I wonder if it's related to breastfeeding and pristine gut and all that.
