Professor Damien Keating (Damien Keating) from Flinders University believes that his scientific discovery brings a cure that will allow you to enjoy food without fear to earn calories.
In particular, physicians raised mice in a genome with no gene RCAN1. Despite a diet high in fat, rodents kept the same weight, reports the Daily Mail.
Doctors have published pictures of the rodents, demonstrating the difference in various models of mice.
Scientists claim that in humans is also present in this gene. Therefore, their innovative technique can help people suffering from excessive weight.
The results of this study can lead to the creation of tablets, which will focus on the influence of RCAN1 and reduced weight.
In the experiment, the researchers kept the mice on the different diets including high fat content, which is believed to cause weight gain.
The diet lasted from eight weeks to six months. But every time the result was the same.
It should be noted that there are two types of fat in the human body — brown fat burns energy, and the white — accumulates.
According to the researchers, obesity increases the risk of at least a dozen types of cancer, and can also lead to diabetes of the 2nd type and heart disease.
Reducing the number of calories and physical exercise can promote weight loss, but pharmaceutical companies are still looking for a pill that will facilitate these methods.
Recently, researchers have tested drugs that reduce appetite.
But a pill that blocks the action of RCAN1, will allow people to burn more calories while they rest. Most importantly, it does not affect appetite and food habits of people.
Recall that studies have shown an Association between obesity and the risk of developing colon cancer and other cancers associated with the gastrointestinal tract.
