ROCHESTER, N.Y., April 6 /PRNewswire/ -- What is the relationship between latent viruses and excess body weight? An important study examined this relationship. The scientists measured the percentage of fat and body weight of 20 identical twins, that is, individuals with an identical genetic background and surrounding. The only difference between the twins was that one carried a certain latent virus, and the other did not. The results showed that the twin that carried the latent virus was heavier and had more body fat that the non-carrier.  This study shows that a latent virus can increase body weight and fat independent of genetics. That is, a latent virus can increase body weight even in individuals with lean relatives, or in individuals that used to be lean at a younger age.
How do latent viruses increase body weight? According to Dr. Hanan Polansky's highly acclaimed scientific discovery published by the Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (http://www.cbcd.net/book.htm), viral DNA, which lays hidden in fat cells (adipocytes), starves the human DNA in these cells. As a genetic parasite, the latent viral genes use resources they "steal" from the human genes. The "starved" human genes produce an abnormal level of proteins, which leads to an increase in body weight. This effect of the latent viral DNA on human genes inspired Dr. Hanan Polansky to call the discovery the "starved" gene phenomenon.
The irregular behavior of the human genes in infected fat cells causes an increase in the number of these cells and an increase in their fat content. Recent independent studies confirmed the link between the presence of certain viruses in these cells and the increase in their numbers and their fat content. These studies also confirmed the general link between viruses and weight gain.
What happens during a diet? Diets do not destroy adipocytes. They merely empty them. Empty adipocytes send signals to the brain that induce eating, and the emptier the fat depots, the stronger the signals, and the more likely is the experience of the notorious Yo-Yo dieting.
How to improve weight management? The easiest way to improve weight management is to decrease the number of empty fat cells in the body. How? By taking Gene-Eden, a dietary supplement that can assist in controlling the level of latent viruses in the body, and as a result, the number of empty fat cells.
