【中英文】最美丽谎言 虚拟食物药丸可助你减肥

发布日期:9/19/2019 9:35:40 PM
 A drug dubbed an 'imaginary meal in a pill' is being developed by scientists.


The pill tricks the body into thinking it has consumed a large amount of calories - as if you have just eaten a substantial meal。


The dieter's dream, it would allow them to continue to enjoy fatty foods without putting on weight。


The drug, which tricks the body into believing it has eaten, also cuts cholesterol and keeps blood sugar levels under control。


Researcher Ronald Evans said: 'This pill is like an imaginary meal。

罗纳德·埃万斯(Ronald Evans)是该药的研究者,他表示:“这种药丸就像一盘虚拟的大餐。

'It sends out the same signals that normally happen when you eat a lot of food, so the body starts clearing out space to store it。


'But there are no calories and no change in appetite.'


British doctors described the US breakthrough as potentially of great importance – but cautioned that much more work needs to be done。


The research comes amid growing concern that the world is losing the battle against obesity。


Obesity has reached epidemic proportions globally, with at least 2.8 million people dying each year as a result of being overweight or obese, according to the World Health Organisation。


It warns 44 per cent of the diabetes burden, 23 per cent of the heart disease burden and between 7 per cent and 41 per cent of the burden of certain cancers are attributable to people being overweight or obese。


And with just one diet drug on the market, growing numbers of people are restoring to going under the surgeon's knife。


The excitement surrounds a new medicine called fexaramine。


Given to obese mice fed fatty food, it stopped them from piling on the pounds。


Fat was burnt off, levels of artery-clogging cholesterol fell and blood sugar levels were better controlled。


The drug also sped up metabolism and turned harmful white fat that wobbles around the waist into healthy brown fat。


Remarkably, it did all this without affecting appetite。


If the drug worked as well in people, it might mean could keep their weight under control while eating just as much as usual。


They may even be able to keep trim while feasting on chips, cakes and other fatty foods。


Professor Evans, of the Salk Institute in California, said that fexaramine works by making the body believe it has eaten a big meal。

加利福尼亚州索尔克生物研究所(Salk Institute)的埃万斯教授表示,fexaramine的工作原理类似于让人体误认为已食用一大份食物。

When the drug hits the stomach, it kick-starts digestion。


Fexaramine also spurs the body into burning off fat to create space to store the incoming nutrients。


The medicine doesn't pass into the bloodstream and circulate round the body but stays in the stomach, which should cut the risk of side-effects。
