Human Adenovirus Promotes Weight Gain in Monkeys
While I don’t have much to say on this topic (surprised?), I must admit that I have never given much thought to an infectious etiology for obesity. I just hope that we do not tread too heavily down this path, releasing patients of their own personal responsibility with lifestyle changes promoting a healthy weight and blaming excess weight on a virus that is beyond our control.
