Antibiotics is the Fat Culprit?
My Mom sent me an interesting article today:  The Fat Drug, in the NYTimes. Basically, it says that it was always-known that feeding antibiotics to livestock made them grow much fatter on less feed. And that it did the same thing to humans.

The question remains how to turn the switch back off, once it's been turned on. The article went in an interesting direction about the microbe suite in our digestive tracts. We've always known that antibiotics disrupt the microbes.
