Important new study on weight loss!
 
Hormone in fruit flies sheds light on diabetes cure, weight-loss drug for humans

The headline reads: "Hormone in Fruit Flies Sheds Light On Diabetes Cure, Weight-Loss Drug for Humans."

Less sugar, calorie drinks, processed foods and junk food anyone?

From the article:

Quote:

An "exercise drug" would turn on all AMP-activated kinase in the body and trick the body into thinking it was exercising. "Exercise stimulates AMP-activated kinase, so manipulation of this molecule may lead to getting the benefits of exercise without exercising

Great idea, then humanity will be running around trying to find excess food just to remain at a decent weight, especially if it goes wrong and continues to "fool" the body into thinking that even when they pull you off the stuff...why can't we just exercise :biglifter:.

Magic pills for everyone!

I know 4 people on high blood pressure medication. They all still have higher blood pressure than I do. Seems to be working well.

I agree with you. Exercise will get you the results that you want and need.

Bugs are icky. I hope that I can continue to keep my diabetes in check with exercise and diet. Or I may have to take something like byetta, which is made from gila monster saliva.Attachment 5352

If they develop a magic pill that actually works. Probably closer than we think.

Yea but a few will O.D. on it and anorexics will die popping hundred and then they will ban it just when it was starting to do the world some good.
