Scientists accidentally discover a drug that could let you eat as much as you want without gaining ANY weight
Scientists have accidentally found a way to create a pill that would let you eat excessive amounts of fat without gaining weight.
The team at Yale University were trying to cultivate a batch of morbidly obese mice.
However, in doing so they edited out two genes - which, in turn, appeared to protect the mice from weight gain, despite living on a high-fat diet.
While they have so far only tested this on rodents, the researchers believe they may be able to target those same receptors in humans, to block fat from being absorbed into the gut.
