I saw on FOX news that scientist that there is an obesity virus. Can you believe it an obesity virus and according to the scientists it can be pass as easy as the common cold.

According to the report the virus is passed through coughs, sneezes, and dirty hands. In addition to causing weight gain the virus causes runny noses and sore throats.

The report state that once you are infected the virus seeks out fat tissue, then makes copies of itself and in the process increases the fat cells.  They go on to say that in clinical studies a third of obese people had the virus while only 11 percent of thinner prople had the virus.
