    Abstract

    The work of Natasha Harvey et al in 2005 showed a strong link between lymphatic vascular defects and adult onset obesity (in mice), and Schneider et al (2005) commented that this, and other research, raised the spectre of significant involvement of the lymphatic system and its functioning (or more properly its inability to function well) and obesity.
