Some scientists are now claiming that a virus originating from chickens might be responsible for obesity in some people. It has been labeled the SMAM-1 and while it hasn't been proven, it can theoretically be transferred from poultry to humans (antibodies have been found in people). The virus apparently causes a shrunken thymus, enlarged kidneys, an enlarged liver, and extra 'cushion' in the abdomen region. So can this mystery virus be the source of someone's obesity?

I'm sure you've heard it before -- an overweight or obese person saying, "I have a hard time losing weight due to genetics". You've probably wondered if there was any truth to this or if it was just an excuse. At one time, scientists thought a gene called FTO might be associated with obesity. But according to new studies, the FTO gene (dubbed the "fat gene") is actually not a barrier to weight loss.
