Submission + - Obesity linked to gut bacterial population

krishn_bhakt writes: "Joel Elmquist (The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, USA), a Physiology Faculty 1000 Member, comments "This is one of the most provocative papers to be published in the field of obesity research in some time.

The nature article is available at http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v444/n7122/ab s/nature05414.html ."
