Another buzzkill weight loss doodad
. . .HA is sorry, she meant “biological brake for a hunger hormone,” this one cleverly named obestatin. So far it’s only been tested in rats. The dox are rhapsodic, using words like “intriguing.” A third of adults are obese (yes, we already know who we are), but will have to hold the confetti for now because dox still haven’t decided whether this works only by making the rats feel too sick to eat.
