A recent study by researchers from Monash University in Australia has found another clue regarding how obesity affects the human body. With more than 4 million obese Australians, a number that’s expected to grow, lead author Professor Tony Tiganis explained why it’s necessary to find treatment for this preventable handicap.
“Humans have a deep-seated attraction to overeating and nutrient-rich food, inherited from our hunter-gatherer ancestors. Now that food is more readily available and our lifestyles are less active, our evolutionary drive to overeat is becoming problematic,” said Tiganis. “Simply telling people to eat less and exercise more is not going to be sufficient to reverse the obesity trend. There is a pressing need to develop novel drugs that complement diet and exercise to both prevent and treat this disease.”
If you’re overweight and need help jump-starting your weight loss, a dietary supplement may be in order.
