Abstract To the Editor: Pham and colleagues commented on the effects of probiotics; however, not much is known about the impact of probiotics on weight gain and obesity. It is known that a predominance of certain bacteria, such as Lactobacillus, in the bowel can promote weight gain. Many of these bacteria are found in probiotic products.
