Those who become overweight have only roughly half as much of bifidobacterial, but have twice as much of a Staphylococcus aureus.

"Aberrant compositional development of the gut microbiota precedes overweight, offering new possibilities for preventive and therapeutic applications in weight management," the authors of the study concluded.
