cris Posted July 8, 2001 Report Share Posted July 8, 2001 on this noon's news, they announced that a researcher, a doctor whose name i don't recall, has discovered a virus which does indeed cause obesity. the study was done with chickens (shades of chicken run)and he discovered that this virus is highly contagious. he said that he could not do this same study in humans, but that they were now examining humans with obesity for antibodies to this virus. it has been found in some folks. the paper was published in the journal of obesity, it has not been made public. wayne state does have a medical school. if i hear any more about it, i'll post it... but he made no mention of any connection to tumor generation or cushings or other hormonal imbalances. in virginia at the pit days conference, the doctors who were hosting the seminar had posted questions about virally caused tumors but said they had no idea what was causing pit or adrenal tumors... just that there was ongoing research.
