Lack of Gut Bugs Linked to Extra Pounds on Kids

Having lower levels of a certain type of gut bacteria, which may be associated with eating too little protein, could lead to obesity in kids, researchers found.

Low concentrations of Bacteroides fragilis group bacteria were linked with a greater likelihood of being obese using two different methods of assessing the bacteria (P=0.033 and P=0.013, respectively), Liene Bervoets, MD, of the University of Hasselt in Belgium, and colleagues reported at the European Congress on Obesity in Lyon, France.

Having a higher intake of protein was associated with a higher colonization of B. fragilis bacteria, suggesting that "low concentrations of B. fragilis group bacteria, together with a low protein intake during childhood, could lead to the development of obesity," Bervoets said in a statement.
