Firmicutes - I'm full of 'em!

You'd think they would have called the bacteria "flabby-cutes". :-) Apparently...(well, you know, according to one study, probably brought to you by bacterial culturists or anti-biotic manufacturers) fat people carry more firmicute bacteria than our thin counterparts. Either it causes obesity or fat people just produce more. Either way, it's festive firmicutes to the rescue in third world countries. In any event, go here for more info: http://www.nature.com/nature
