Obesity is one of the largest public health problems nowadays. This is the reason why we want to understand the source of obesity. It is already known that children of obese parents have a predisposition to develop obesity, even despite the fact that this is not fully explained by genetics. As there is a vertical transmission of the gut microbiome from mother to child, the obese microbiome is transferred to the infant during birth, resulting in an obese cycle. This obese-cycle will be investigated in this review, because it gives more insight into the role of the microbiome in relationship to obesity.
