Mutation found to cause obesity
« on: March 20, 2012, 06:39:57 AM »
A study preformed on mice had shown that a particular mutation in the genes made mice eat 80% more than they should since the message of "stop eating" was no longer being passed from the brain to the body.
Even though this particular mutation is rare in cases of humans, it could be used  to "open up novel strategies to help the brain control body weight" such as finding a"drug that can stimulate BDNF expression".
I don't know about you but I think this is quite a big step in the right direction, this could help many people who are on their way to obesity.

Nice find. Although I'm still of the opinion that people should have some more discipline. There are tons of people saying they can't help it that they get fat. Yet, the are eating in McDonalds every 2 days and drinking cola all day long.

Indeed, but for the people who have slow metabolisms or any other type of problem that causes them to rapidly (or slowly) gain weight without their consent.....then this -may- be the future answer to their problems.
But for the people who just eat themselves to death, well they are just reaping what they sow.

I think they'd lose more money in countless lawsuits than they would make adding the formula into their food products, plus I'm pretty sure all ingredients have to be recorded and pre-approved these days

i dont think that would happen. big companies can make big bribes. and besides, if ingredients have to be pre-aproved. dont you think that would probably make cigarettes illegal (and you dont see cigarette ingredients on the boxes). so maybe food companies could make it as if they werent using this mutation

Well true but people smoke cigarettes knowing its dangers and what goes into it, if people knew that the big companies food were using a formula to spark addictive eating and odd increases in sales then im pretty sure people would react to it, not telling everyone what the contents of the food are is illegal, and thus lawsuits.
Its true that big companies get upto some shifty stuff, but dont you think someone sooner or later will make the connection between the company and the increase in obesity with people who purchase their products?
I mean McDonalds and KFC have been taken to court numerous times already, and they are as big as you get.

Or they're having 7 servings of a McDonald's salad and insist that's a proper diet.

It's probably an image that I saw at some point and recalled subconsciously. I have a tendency to do that sometimes.
