Scientists are working on an anti-obesity pill that could reduce the fat stored by overweight people by almost a half in a week.Tests on mice have shown that the drug could decrease body weight by a quarter and their fat content by 42 per cent after seven days.
After a month, the weight of the mice had been reduced by 28 per cent and their fat mass by 63 per cent.
Dr Richard DiMarchi and colleagues at Indiana University in the U.S. created the synthetic hormone and carried out the trials.
Last night, he told the mail it would be ten years before the drug is available and tests needed to be completed on humans.
so its back to salad for now then..
