The human gut contains over a thousand different types of bacterial species, yet most of this population is accounted for by just forty different species. Animal models suggest that obesity is associated with specific types of these bacterial species. For example, obese mice have different types of bacteria in their gut compared to their thin counterparts. What this means is that there is hope for us all. If we are obese, then by altering our diet and eating the right foods we can influence the growth of “favourable” bacteria and reduce the “negative” bacteria that may in turn harm us.
