  •  Of course this would be a blockbuster drug! (5+ / 0-)

    Instead of looking at this through a conservative frame of lazy vs. active, how about we look at it as a more healthy population?

    While I doubt it will be on market anytime soon, any drug that can cause people to lose fat and become more lean has a chance to extend lives, increase quality of lives, and sharply reduce some weight related health costs.

    Life is already hard and if we have the capability to make it somewhat easier, then so be it. There are plenty of urgent problems in the world that cannot be successfully addressed pharmacologically.

    The politicians may be bought, and the system corrupt, but it is our duty to fix these things.
