At least that’s what this article teaser would lead people to believe.

IS OBESITY CAUSED BY A VIRUS?

Maybe it isn’t your friends who are making you fat after all. New research has found
that when human stem cells — the blank slate of the cell world — were exposed to a
common virus they turned into fat cells.

While it apparently IS possible that exposure to this virus is the cause of some obesity, the main cause remains the same… Taking in more calories than you burn.  And just to make sure that nobody thinks I am in any way slamming overweight people, I’m not.  The last time I was on a scale I believe the nasty thing reported 324 or somewhere close.
