I know for a fact that smoking kills the cold-like virus.
The government should subsidize smoking.

It's mostly eating more calories than you burn.
That being said, sometime during my growth spurt during adolescence, I stopped being able to eat whatever I wanted and I started gaining weight quickly. I've had weight issues ever since. I'm currently the thinnest I've ever been, but it takes a lot of exercise (hour plus each day), and I have to stay hungry most of the time. It's worth it.
But if you told me that I caught a cold with some metabolism effect at 13, I wouldn't be surprised at all.

This is the 4th thread in 3 years to describe the tendency of the AD-36 virus to cause obesity. Click on the keyword, ad36, and find Coleus' thread.
Earlier this year, researchers in Dhurandhar's lab found that exposure to the virus actually caused adult human stem cells to turn into fat-storing cells.

It is known to cause coughs, sore throats, diarrhoea and conjunctivitis but has now also been found to make fat cells multiply, leading to weight gain.
I heard about this over 10 years ago in grad school. Even if fat cells multiply, you still can't get any fatter than the amount of fat represented by the energy intake in excess of energy expenditure. Of course a complicating factor could be that the excess fat cells could add to hunger signals leading to more eating than is necessary for energy homeostasis.

His studies indicated that the virus lingers for up to three months, during which time it multiplies fat and is contagious to others.
3 months of swelling fat cells translates to a lifetime of obesity? Does it work retroactively? Sounds fishy to me.
To all those who have ever scorned a fat person and insisted that they must be fat just because they eat like a pig...well, in the immortal words of Sam Kinnison, “Bite me.”
