Overweight women may never escape the painful stigma of obesity — even after they have shed the pounds, new research suggests. The study, by the University of Hawaii at Mānoa, The University of Manchester, and Monash University, examined whether anti-fat prejudice against women persisted even after they had lost significant weight and were now thin. The researchers asked young men and women to read vignettes describing a woman who had either lost weight (70 pounds/32...

A recent study conducted at the University of Alabama at Birmingham demonstrates that there is much more to the obesity epidemic than meets the eye. Led by biostatistics professor David B. Allison, Ph.D., the study began with the analysis of previous data about little primates called marmosets, which was collected at the Wisconsin Non-Human Primate Center.  The population had gradually...

So, why are we fat? And getting fatter? Most people would say it's simple: We eat too much and exercise too little. But University of Alabama at Birmingham obesity researcher David B. Allison, Ph.D., says that answer, while valid, may be a little too simple. Allison and colleagues think the more relevant question is this: Why do we eat too much and expend too little energy? And like good detectives, they've set out to identify a suspect, or suspects, that may be contributing to the obesity...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- Could virus cause obesity? New research shows having one particular virus -- known as adenovirus 36 (AD36) -- may increase a child's risk of becoming obese. Researchers from the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine tested 124 children who were between ages 8 and 18 for AD36 -- one of more than 50 strains of the adenovirus, which is known to cause respiratory, gastrointestinal and other infections. AD36 is the only human adenovirus currently linked to...

Specifically, according to a UC San Diego press release, they were searching for "the presence of antibodies...

ROCHESTER, N.Y., April 6 /PRNewswire/ -- What is the relationship between latent viruses and excess body weight? An important study examined this relationship. The scientists measured the percentage of fat and body weight of 20 identical twins, that is, individuals with an identical genetic background and surrounding. The only difference between the twins was that one carried a certain latent virus, and the other did not. The results showed that the twin that carried the latent virus was...

Monday, scientists said that obesity can be "caught" as easily as a common cold from other people's coughs, sneezes and dirty hands. Researchers believe that an airborne "adenovirus" germ might cause the fat plague that is causing obesity in Britain and other countries. As many as one in three obese people have become overweight after becoming a victim of the AD-36. An associate professor at The Pennington Biomedical Research Center in Baton Rouge, La., said the AD-36 virus infects the lungs,...

A blood test that measures how blood triglycerides react to a fatty meal may be able to identify those at risk for obesity, U.S. researchers said. Senior author Mark Friedman of the Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia said triglycerides are a form of fat that is transported in the blood and stored in the body's fat tissues. The global obesity epidemic is thought to be caused in part by consumption of a diet high in fat and carbohydrates, which promotes weight gain. This...

Study opens doors to new tests to identify those at risk According to new research from the Monell Center, the degree of change in blood triglyceride levels following a fatty meal may indicate susceptibility to diet-induced obesity. The findings open doors to new methods of identifying people, including children, who are at risk for becoming obese. Triglycerides are a form of fat that is transported in the blood and stored in the body's fat tissues. They are found in foods and also are...
