Your digestive system may be making you fat. It’s hard to believe – but very true!
New research is being published every day that blames the bugs in your digestive system and the way they upset your gut’s immune system on those extra pounds.
The authors of some of these studies explain that damage to the gut can lead to a leaky gut, allowing food particles to be exposed to the gut’s immune system. This then triggers a system-wide immune response, leading to inflammation all over the body and producing obesity by increasing insulin resistance.
