Hope over 'obesity-busting gum



from the bbc:
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/6262347.stm

Scientists are looking at whether an appetite-suppressing chewing gum could be used to tackle obesity.

An injectible treatment could be available in five to eight years, but the long-term goal is to produce a form that can be absorbed in the mouth.

One in five adults are obese, but that could rise to one in three by 2010.

of, course if mcdonalds hit all their company targets, then that figure will rise to four out of three...

nutty,

I suggest we engage in Blackhawk flights over the U.K. and drop copies of the "Calorie Commander."
