    Well thats not the case actually, there are some prevalent bacteria in our guts and these have been identified to cause the obesity in few. Still the percentage of this should be less as most of the people are responsible themselves for this problem owing to their lifestyle, for instance the doctors have asked me to go with the norvasc and I do not know how long!

    The fact is that the reason people are obsese in the west is because life is too good and food is too easy to come by, so people don't do much but eat.
