I was reading in Remedy Magazine that scientists have discovered a virus that causes fat cells in people to get bigger and fluffier - or FATter! and also this virus can convert other cells into fat cells. what do you think of this news? will they be able to develope a safe antiviral and cure many people from this ailment? they did mention that not all fat people are fat due to this virus....

That sounds rather interesting nd there's sure to be lots of mkoney made with that concept thrown out to all the fat people of the world.

Well this is a new one. Although from my point of view, even without this fat virus everyone can easily get fat nowadays. Most of the foods we take in contains a lot of preservative and salts as well as other stuff that may make us unhealthy. Well, I'm hoping that they will be able to come up with something to control this virus.

I had heard of this. I agree that it's a good excuse to not try to control weight. Will they develop a cure? I don't have much hope. They've yet to develop an effective cure for colds or any other viral infection, mostly because viruses mutate so quickly.

I absolutely agree it is just one more thing to give alot of people yet another excuse.
