Obesity Could be Catching

A new report into obesity shows that being overweight could be catching. Scientists have discovered an obesity virus that might be as easy to catch as a cold. American researchers say that washing your hands could be one way to kill the virus and avoid becoming overweight. Basic hygiene could improve the lives of millions of people around the world. Dr. Leah Whigham of the University of Wisconsin did research on a human virus that caused obesity in chickens. She believes it could also make humans fat. She also believes the virus exists in most countries around the world.
