At the same time there are people who eat very little but just pack ...

A research published this week in cell reports has found a new link between obesity and brain. This study has shown that when an enzyme alpha/beta hydrolase domain-6 (ABHD6) is blocked in the mice they fail to lose weight even under ideal weight loose regimen. Later researchers have found that this enzyme act as a switch for body’s adjustment to extremes. Because a genetically engineered mouse that was deprived of the ABDH6 enzyme in a localized area of the brain and specific population of hypot...
