Israeli researchers make breakthrough discovery to combat obesity
The researchers claim to have identified the "mechanism of action of the master switch for hunger in the brain."
Researchers from The Hebrew University of Jerusalem and The Weizmann Institute of Science have collaborated with their British counterparts at Queen Mary University of London to make a breakthrough discovery in combating obesity.
Last Thursday, the researchers involved in the study published their work, which reveals that the "mechanism of action of the master switch for hunger is in the brain," which is confirmed to be the melanocortin receptor 4 (or MC4 for short), according to a press release.
To be hungry for most of the day is a struggle for people with defects in the brain's appetite controls. No matter how much one eats, defects such as these will likely lead to obesity.
