Life-extending Drug May Also Combat Obesity
Quote:The compound resveratrol, which is present in red wine and gained fame for its supposed life-extending properties, might also help combat obesity, a new study in animals suggests.


The results show lemurs, members of the primate family, gained less weight during their seasonal fattening period when they consumed daily resveratrol supplements.


The drug also boosted the primates' metabolism and appeared to cause the animals to cut back their food at mealtime, factors that could have contributed to the anti-obesity effects.


Primates are considered a better model for what might happen in people than more distantly related animals, such as rats or mice. However, much more research is needed to determine whether such diet-inducing effects hold true for humans, the researchers say.

another man made drug to compensate for STUPIDITY?

I think the diet industry is the best example of how humanity loves to keep reinventing the wheel.

all diet books (how many have been written) essentially end with the same OBVIOUS advice

eat less
exercise more

duh
something about calories in and calories out?
