A weight loss pill, based on the Human Growth Hormone, was tested on a group of rats. The control group were fed a vegetarian diet.
Yup – the “control” or “normal” group, were fed a vegetarian diet. That seems to have been a fatal mistake for the drug companies.
Read this. Apparently, the drug is no longer being investigated for weight loss, as the test group did “failed to show a significant increase in weight loss when compared to the placebo group”.
This fails to explain why I am such a lardy of course. I blame the beer.
