obesity is pandemic

6 weekold samefood except 1bactery

6 weeks old brothers - same food, except 1bactery

These 2 chicken are brothers, both 6 weeks old and were fed at the same hour of the day with the same things to the exception of ONE bactery….

This is the result of a research led by Didier Raoult of the Faculté de Médecine de MARSEILLE in France, a reference in obesity field.

The fun fact is that this bactery, lactobacillus fermentum, has been used for over 50 years by the Milk Industry to ferment dairies.

The same experiment has been conducted with bifido-bacterium, a bactery present in all bifidus dairy (especially yogurts) tagged as “Pro-bioctic”.

Obesity is a no longer a USA problem, it recently became a pandemic problem (i.e world wide spread) that touches especially the lowest social classes, economic wise.

In the last 20 years, obesity increased to the point of reaching 65% of USA people, despite the fact that lifestyle and food habits didn’t change much along the years.

This leads scientists to investigate the bacterian issue.
