The prevalence of Obesity kept rising over the last decade. To deal with this global health challenge, current therapies, however, have certain limitations. After discovering mechanisms between microbiota and human body and comparing lean and obese individuals, it is found that manipulating microbiome could probably be a solution. Based on recent findings, microbiome-based therapies are introduced, along with speculation for possible treatment.
