Obesity Flu Virus

Obesity can be spread from coughs and sneezes of those who carry the highly contagious AD-36 virus…..

Scientists have discovered that obesity can be caught as easily as the a common cold from other people’s coughs, sneezes and dirty hands.

The condition has been linked to a highly-infectious virus which causes sniffles and sore throats.

Nikhil Dhurandhar, an associate professor at The Pennington Biomedical Research Center, in Baton Rouge, La., explained how the virus, known as AD-36, infects the lungs then travels around the body, forcing fat cells to multiply and also causing sore throats:

“When this virus goes to fat tissue it replicates, making more copies of itself and in the process increases the number of new fat cells, which may explain why the fat tissue expands and why people get fat when they are infected with this virus,”

Tests revealed one third of obese participants had the highly contagious virus, compared to just 11 percent of thinner people

Weight gain can last up to three months until the body has built up resistance to the bug.

New research supports earlier theories from studies on weight gain; evidence in tests on mice and chickens shows the bug could cause overweight people to gain weight.

Nevertheless, experts say there is no reason for those who are overweight to become obsessed with hygiene.

“People could be fat for reasons other than viral infections, so it’s pointless for fat people to try to avoid infection,” said Dhurandhar.

The study also reveals research that suggests dieters always feel hungry because humans have a “natural body weight” and will always suffer hunger pangs.
