Web Desk: It doesn’t seem factual, but Yale University scientists have found a drug that let’s you eat your heart’s content without gaining weight , reported Daily Mail.
The drug was discovered accidentally, while attempting to make mice morbidly obese. When they edited out two genes, they found it prevented weight gain, even though the rodents were on a diet high in fat.
