It is the first experimental evidence that changes in the gut microbiota cause the weight loss after gastric bypass, and that the new, post-bypass mix of microbes can cause weight loss in animals that did not have surgery.

That's really interesting! Hopefully they'll figure out how those without can get weight loss gut bacteria. Thanks for sharing!

Part of the problem is why did their gut microbiota change in the first place? It would be awesome to be able to change it back but people will need to take action to prevent it from changing back to the bad bacteria once corrected.
