A drug made from the saliva of the Gila monster lizard is effective in reducing the craving for food. Researchers at the Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg, have tested the drug on rats, who after treatment ceased their cravings for ordinary food and also chocolate.
I find I ask myself that same question +Johnathan Chung so many times when reading research reports. Should be easy to do human trials on appetite suppression if it is already approved, unless it needs significant doses.
+Johnathan Chung They probably discovered the remains of a gila monster that got into a research lab, with a bunch of thin rats sitting around twiddling their thumbs. That's how stick notes were invented. ;-)
