Re: Obesity linked to a gut bacteria

I saw this last night. It's very interesting and I'm curious to see how this pans out. I wonder, however, how this fits with the observation that gastric bypass surgery almost always cures Type II diabetes almost immediately (within a day or two) after surgery. Presumably the surgery wouldn't get rid of the bacteria, but perhaps the remodeling of the digestive tract changes the environment of the bacteria enough that it no longer has the same effect. I'll be interested to watch how this unfolds.
I have never heard that before. Do you have a good link? Sounds interesting.
