The Ultimate Diet Pill
Researchers have found a way to trigger a gene that causes the body to burn fat — without exercise. Mice tested with the wonder drug not only lost weight, but kept the pounds off while eating fatty foods. Needless to say, the same effect can be achieved through a healthy lifestyle, but who has the time?
’TIS THE REASON…
U.S. scientists have devised a drug that can switch on a gene to burn body fat, offering hope of an exercise pill.
Mice given the drug burned off fat, even when they did not exercise, and were resistant to weight gain despite a high-fat diet.
The ultimate use would be to treat people at risk of obesity-related diseases like diabetes, rather than offer a “no-work six-pack” pill.
