Discovered intestinal virus that leads to obesity and diabetes

Discovered intestinal virus that leads to obesity and diabetes Using a special technique of mathematical modeling, scientists from the United States failed to recognize random virus that can cause obesity and other related diseases.The researchers created an experiment, which was attended by 12 volunteers.Each participant experts took samples of DNA, and some time later established the presence of viral DNA, the length of which is about 100 kilobases.

Further, comparing the results obtained with different virus databases, includingand the base of "human microbes," scientists have made a sensational conclusion: half the world's population has the virus.Experts wonder why they were not able to open a new viral DNA before, because every other possesses it, but only now managed to identify.

detected viruses can infect the intestinal bacterium bacteriodetes, which in turn leads to diabetes and obesity.Now the task of scientists is to examine in more detail the properties of the virus and its impact on other intestinal bacteria.
