MAGIC PILL TO KEEP YOU SLIM
MILLIONS of overweight Britons could benefit from a new wonder diet pill which switches off appetite without any side effects.
Scientists are close to developing the drug which will help combat the growing obesity epidemic with some 15 million in the UK now falling into that category.
Researchers believe the pill will stop obese people from feeling hungry by mimicking the effect of a hormone that switches off appetite and the pleasure associated with eating.
One in four adults and more than one in 10 children, aged 2 to 10, are now classed as obese.
The condition – which increases the risk of heart disease, diabetes and cancer – costs the NHS £5.1billion a year.
